Chosing a color


The sky was easy.  The actual colors of the top Kaibab and Coconino layers are truly a rather drab tan.  However when the sun strikes them, the individual grains that make up these layers reflect back some unbelievable color.  That’s where the artistic license comes in.  Light layers bouncing on lit layers and light bouncing into the shadowed areas; this is when the fun begins.  © Dawn Sutherland  2017
