Shawangunk Ridge Rocks

I think I did the original drawing based on a photograph I took, but if I didn’t it’s based on plein air work.  Inked the contours and tree leaves in some years later, but the blank space of the big rock on the left made it look unfinished.  Was one of the first drawings I thought of when it came time to consider watercolor work.  Was going to wash in the big rock on the left a basic grey until I thought it’d look good sorta purply, and the color choices went off from there.  Ripped off the yellow sky from Van Gogh. 

10 x 6 5/8 inches, ink and watercolor; from 2018.  Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders.  Limited edition run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
