Desert Vista

Desert Vista by Karen Gadient, 2015

Since I had some friends ask to see one of my graphite watercolor landscapes, I’m posting this one (because David likes it and he makes me smile―plus he’s the one who drives me all over the place to see pretty things). Mind you, I’m no landscape artist… I’m just someone who has seen many miles of desert here in Arizona and I like to keep some of it in my sketchbooks. πŸ™‚

Have a great week!
