Foot Square # 20

This sketch of the upper Yellowstone River Valley was created by the Hayden survey team that visited the area in the mid 1800's.  I enlarged it to create the Thermofax screen.  Then, I colored it in with watercolor crayons and painted with water to create the washed effect.  I lived in this valley for 10 years.  The tall peak on the left is Emigrant Peak.

Cynthia! This is fabulous! It reminds me of an old colored, woodblock print. I love the detail and your coloration is superb!
