Monument Valley

I fell in love with some photographs taken by a fellow Watercolor Workshop group member, Susan Roper, who takes lovely pictures. She graciously allows us to work from her pics and so I just finished 2 watercolors from Monument Valley. They are painted on 5"x7" pieces of Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper. This is the first one, and I will post the second tomorrow evening. Thank you, Susan!
