Mesquite Tree in the Kofas

I started this sketch last week when we were camping in the Kofa Wildlife Refuge in Arizona. I noticed how the evening light lit up a mesquite tree and the mountain behind it, and I hurried to capture it in my small sketchbook. Although I liked the sketch, it was not really finished. Today I brightened the mesquite tree, added color to the foreground, and then cropped off quite a bit of the sky and the left side.

    Beautiful. We should just set you up to paint while we do the hiking. You have a great talent and it has been fun to see you develop.
