The White House Ruins

Painting 1.3, The white house ruins, an ancestral puebloan cliff dwelling in Canyon de Chelly National Monument. I really loved how there appeared to be a seam in the rock wall leading down to where these structures were built. Unfortunately I didn't have time to hike all the way down to the base of the cliff. These cliffs are excellent displays of streaky coating on sandstone known as desert varnish. I'm still trying to figure out a way to depict it in a painting, because it is truly one of the defining features of the landscape.
