This painting is based on an area I explored in Sedona, Arizona. These "washes", or dry river beds, in the desert areas out west are bone dry most of the year, but can quickly fill with water during a rainstorm. This one had the red earth color typical of the Sedona area.
If you're interested in purchasing this 7.5" x 11" painting, or any other of my weekly watercolor paintings for $100 including shipping, or if you'd like to see more of my paintings, please visit my Weekly Watercolor website. I've made one major change to this website to accommodate this year's paintings. I've moved some of my oldest weekly watercolors to a second gallery page. Those paintings are still available to buy for $100.
