The Cathedral

















(from the flat files)

This scene is a contrast in values, textures and colors.
The contrast between the Cottonwoods on the left and the
pines on the right. The dry creek and it's sun baked surface
leads the eye in and Cathedral Rock in the background hovers
over the entire scene.

15" x 20" on Arches 140 lb. watercolor paper.

Hello again Doug. It's good to look back on earlier work, but probably a mistake to make any changes, even if for the better. In your case no need or scope for improvement. Perhaps one day I'll get there as well. I much admire "The Cathedral" and think your representation of the dried up creek is superbly done. Regards Roger

Lovely! I miss being in Sedona!

Liz, I miss it too. It was kind of a rebirth for
me as far as being excited about painting.
