Spent some time finishing up the drawing I started while in Grand Staircase on our hike from Sunday. This is a view down into Buckskin Wash as it cuts deep into the desert leading to the Paria River and eventually the Colorado. I only had time to do a pen drawing while out on site. When we returned to our campsite, I added the watercolors, which magically turned it into a Technicolor dream. The desert certainly was in bloom and was about as colorful as it gets, so I guess my memory of it translated into bright poppy colors in my sketchbook.
