Chaco #4: Doorways 02
pastel on black Strathmore
Another view from inside Pueblo Bonita looking through one of the rectangular doorways and across to another. Interestingly, there are steps that lead to each doorway. The row of wooden beam ends protruding from the wall above the door are all that remain of the support for the second story floor of this pueblo.
For this pastel painting, I relied on scumbling of colors to achieve the lighter values within the second room, which has much more reflected light.
