The Painted Desert

The Painted Desert from Tiponi Point

I’m not an artist, but I do like line drawings.  I’ve learned a way to create line drawings from photographs using Photoshop, and I enjoy the experiments very much.  This is one of the experiments that I felt was worthy of posting.

Betsy and I took a major trip out west in June, 2011.  Our first stop was to the Painted Desert in the Petrified Forest National Park.  The drawing above is a rendition of what we saw at our first overlook.  The photograph on which the drawing is based is shown below.

    That looks like fun, turning a photo into a line drawing. The painted desert looks just like its name.
