watercolor 18 x 24 inches

So . . . .tired of rocks?  Take a look at this . . . .a solid granite wall with mature oaks and ponderosa pines growing out of the cracks.  This wall could be one 1000 feet (300 meters) high . . or more.  The model is from the neighborhood of where my rocks lie . . . .Yosemite National Park in California.   The rocks seen in the previous posts fall from cliff faces like this . . .and sometimes from enormous heights.

The abstract patterns of line and shape in these cliff faces make a painter ponder them for hours on end . . . . . . .and usually go home in frustration when attempting to paint them.
