My recent trip across the southwestern US motivated me to try a watercolor landscape of the red rock country of southeastern Utah. This particular project was inspired by Landscape Arch in Arches National Park. I hope to capture the feeling that you can reach right out and touch the monoliths that dominate the terrain in this part of the country.
I began with a Prismacolor pencil outline using Goldenrod, and blocked in the rock area with Yellow Ochre watercolor.
I continued to layer Cerulean Blue, Cadmium Red Light, and Cadmium Yellow Pale.
