Antelope Canyon is located in Arizona on Navajo land. The canyon was formed by erosion of the Navajo Sandstone, which as created amazing flowing caverns.
I painted this image during my limited colour palette challenge during July 2021, an art challenge I’ve dubbed Huely. For a few of the colour palettes I wanted to focus on painting landscapes, I opted for painting scenery found in US National Parks, as they tend to be so different from what I am used to seeing, and there are so many breathtaking views. It’s also a way for me to travel through imagery, and explore scenery I might not otherwise have seen. Antelope Canyon seemed really perfect for this warm toned colour palette as it mimics the colour of the sandstone so well.
