The majestic and awesome Aravaipa Canyon, in central Arizona.
Can one even try to capture the raw beauty?
(oil sketch, 6 x 12 inches).
A little further down the trail,
with a view of the Cottonwood grove in the canyon.
A little pastel sketch begun,
a little more…
And then it’s time for a late afternoon Sycamore sketch in oil.
The oil palette, very tidy.
Aravaipa is so lovely in the late spring.
