Sketchbook: Bell Rock, Sedona, Arizona

I made this drawing with crayons on pink construction paper.
 I like crayons because they have pure clear colors that blend well. Also, it is hard to take myself seriously when I am drawing with crayons. They take me back to my childhood! In art, this is a good thing.

This drawing is based on a photo my father took of me, standing in front of Bell Rock, in Sedona, Arizona. This area has magnificent red rock formations. There is a mysterious flow suggested by the swirling clouds and scarf. To keep the dreamy quality of this image, I faded the edges.
