Dusk on Calle Iglesia 12x16

I was in the village of Tubac one evening at dusk, I was struck by the way the afternoon
light dispersed as it lit up these trees. This is a small study of this scene


I have been commissioned to do a mural in an archway on the outside of a large
recreation center. They wanted the Santa Rita Mountains with Elephant Head Mountain
in the background and a desert scene with DeAnza and his horsemen riding towards
the viewer. The actual size is about 5' wide by 7 or 8" high.
here is the design that was approved. There will be more detail in the mural
since its alot bigger,the design panel is 16x20.
