This series of colored drawings were developed from a number of location sketches depicting various views of Bombay Beach on the Salton Sea.  In comparing the sketches I attempted to find a way to organize and unify them into a larger panoramic series.  The same format and consistent placement of the horizon are two of the unifying factors.  In this work, I am attempting to depict a sense of large open space and specific texture in the landscape through a minimal use of materials, color and actual picture space.  The drawings are watercolor, charcoal and pastel on museum board.  Each drawing measures 30" x 40".  Details are shown below.
