Sedona sunshine

I was really tired at the end of a long day and wanted to just paint a simple landscape with lots of colors in it - Ironically picked up a rocky desert picture :-)

I completed this one in under an hour - but in all the rush, overlooked a couple of things like having a huge blue 'empty' sky area next to the rock and the shrub and the rock look like 2 blocks one below the other :-) Ferenc suggested that I put some distant mountains in the right corner and some birdies - which I think works much better. I think the photograph has more shadow so the darks haven't come out that well in it, but overall I was happy with the experiment that evening :-)
