Water is rare in the desert but exists everywhere if a hiker knows where to go. The contrast of the desert vegetation, rugged canyons and flowing or falling water is unique and magical.
These are many smaller woodcuts that I use as "sketches" to hone skill in capturing the woodcut essence in the desert around me. I usually take a bunch of little blocks in my backpack the way other artists take a sketchbook. A magic marker is my weapon of choice as it allows me to sketch quickly and capture the quirky shapes of desert flora and the awesome darks and lights of desert landscapes.
Suitable for smaller frames, these make great gifts framed or unframed.
