High Desert Vista One

5x7 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. This is my first piece where I purposely used a neutral palette. I usually use a lot of color. I thought it would be fun and interesting to use neutrals with charcoal and see what happens! Some people like neutrals in their office and home. I added the highlights of color for contrast and interest. Tell me what you think!
