"Sunset Hike"

Sunset Hike, 14 x 11
I've been enjoying these southwestern desert scenes and I guess I'm in the midst of creating a series.  Abandoning the typical sunset colors I would normally use, I was drawn to these cooler colors that I liked in combination with the pale yellow greens. I stopped short of overworking the rocky area in the forground to make sure the viewer's focus would be pulled back a bit further along the path, skipping along the shadow patterns along the way. I'm hoping I can keep the momentum going on these southwestern paintings!
