What's that coming out from behind the rocky outcrop?? Indians!!

No, it's OK, it's just a tumbleweed...

Great stuff!

Brian Miller said...

nice...love looking at natures art...like stone outcroppings and how the wind and rain shaped them...you captured that nicely..

For a moment there, I thought you'd drawn a chunk of Australia :D But then I guess New Mexico is something similar, minus the kangaroos :D

I love the freedom you have in this sketch. Shows a good hand, an experienced hand. Nice linework.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice sketch, colours and I also like the quick lines you draw (with pen I think)because they give emphasis.

Debbie said...

Reminds me of my childhood summers in the dessert in California! Have always wanted to visit New Mexico. I think you captured the sense of the landscape!

there is that feeling of desolation, probably because there's no people around

Lovely sketch, I already get a feel of New Mexico just by looking at this!

Lovely sketch, resembles well the flat rock shelves of New Mexico and surrounding areas.

Looks great! Love the fast energy in this sketch. Makes me remember my Christmas holiday in NM a few years ago.
