March 2015: Canyon Trip - Antelope Canyon

There are two parts of the Antelope canyon - upper and lower - and I drew both and will make two separate posts about them. But my posts are not about upper and lower parts - my posts are about vertical sketches and square ones.

Antelope Canyon is another place where I can sketch forever and ever. Very challenging sketching though - narrow passages, lots of people in constant motion - one group comes after another, everyone wants to take pictures and run ahead, treacherous light, unbelievably complex juxtaposition of curves, shadows and colors, it's cold and hot at the same time, sand everywhere and kid is so stunned with all this he gets lost every other turn or tries to climb the wall to show you iron deposit or bird nest or tumble weed and then jump onto you to show how spooky the place is.

In short: liquid watercolors in waterbrushes was the only way to capture at least something! But oh what a beautiful subject!
