I used Microsoft Paint to colorize this digital drawing from red Rock Canyon. I know there are more sophisticated programs out there but Paint seemed like an appropriate program to use on a PNG that’s 152 x 222 pixels in size.

On our last day in Las Vegas we rented a car and drove to nearby Red Rock Canyon. As it turns out we had a view of Red Rock Canyon from our hotel room (see Las Vegas part 1). We drove along the “Scenic Route” and stopped at several of the “Lookouts”. While Ariana, Stephani and Yuan took in the view I would try to get a quick drawing in. Drawing things of that scale on a little screen about 1 1/4 inches square is a challenge. There is so much information to record, but the best approach is to keep it simple. Visiting Red Rock Canyon and having a nice picnic lunch was a great way to finish up our Las Vegas experience.
