Sedona Cityscape Two, abstract cityscape by Carol Engles

8 x 11 pastel and watercolor on paper. This is a "companion" piece to one I posted last month. These really are BRIGHT. Pastels are so wonderful because they can be subtle or bright. As I have commented before, they really jump out at you when framed under glass.

Thanks Theresa! This one and the companion piece "Sedona One" have more red than usual. I am amazed at how intense the color is!

Love the bright colors and the energy and busyness that is both dramatic and beautiful!

Nice blog!
