Russ Ball watercolor painting of the rocks in
Albuquerques Tijeras Canyon are a combination of the abstract
shapes of the rocks and the shadows they cast and the carefully rendered,
super-real textured rocks
as they exist. This combination of aesthetics gives the viewer the best
of both worlds. All painted on location, usually in the morning when
the light comes in at a low angle, they reflect the magical qualities
of New Mexicos rugged terrain.
