Montezuma Castle -Sedona, Az
Oil on 7x5 hardboard.
This is for the WDE at Wet Canvas...Catherine supplied the photo choices.
The Sedona, Arizona cliff dwellings really piqued my interest. So I did a little Google search and came up with some interesting facts.
An ancient Indian Tribe called the Sinaquas built the cliff dwellings called Montezuma Castle about 700 years ago in the early 1300s.
It took ladders to climb to Montezuma Castle and as the Sinaqua reached each level, more ladders were needed to make their way to the cliff community making it difficult for enemy tribes to penetrate the natural defense of straight-vertical barriers.
This is oil on a 7x5 hardboard.I first toned it with a dark red acrylic.
I became very choosy about where to place the lights and the thick accents.
I really enjoyed doing this one.
Thanks for taking a peek!
