Cliffs Near Abiquiu

Cliffs Near Abiquiu 16x20 oil
These interesting cliffs and rock faces are just north of Ghost Ranch, which is just north of Abiquiu, NM. The striations in the geology of the rocks are really this strong and interesting. I like the rocks and ground but I'm not so sure about the sky. But I don't believe I'll work on this one any longer, it's finished. The sky has yellow and some lilac in it which is appropriate for this area; I do like that.
I'm looking forward to this weekend. My men will be out of town on a birthday camping trip so I'll have lots of painting time and the perfect companion: my black lab Scout. I hope to do some more large sky paintings.
