"Canyon River" ©

More practice on canyon lands painting, this little study allowed some experimentation with using Hematite Violet (DaVinci), a color I had never used before.  It's a great "mother" color, easily influenced by any additional color.  I used it in every mixture and fell in love with it.  I have no idea where the image came from or the place but it looks like Zion or somewhere in the canyon lands of Arizona or Utah.

Great one, Laura... I know you're doing these canyons in prep for the workshop...
Don't you wonder how Payne mixed his colors for his canyon walls??? I'll be there was no Hematite Violet!

Hope to see you soon.
