Silver City Red Sketch and Photos

We are back in Silver City.  I sketched in the regular travel sketchbook with the Micron 03 and added watercolor.  This sketch is for Scavenger Hunt 466.  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1412675


Number 9, primary color - red
Number 10, secondary color - green
I was going to do the tomatoes in pastel because they look so yummy, but was not energetic enough to get them out.  Lazy me.

We had such a good time in Arizona so we are catching up on rest and not doing much.


These rocks are in Texas Canyon in Arizona.  Huge rocks, again sort of in the middle of nowhere.  They have a rest stop there, but we didn't stop this time.  Interesting to see and I'm sure I have posted photos before.  :)

I did a watercolor of similar tomatoes on the vine years ago. It was a fun little exercise/painting. Yours looks fun too. Texas Canyon in Arizona - funny name.

Thanks, Bag Blog. I paint tomatoes and apples a lot. I like red in paintings. :-)
Texas Canyon is odd. So many places with similar names.....
