In this first sketch, done from Ryan Campground, are the Saddle Rocks by Ryan Mountain. There are actually a few rock climbing routes on these rocks, the longest in the Park, including the ever-popular Walk On The Wild Side (5.8). Mark and I did that climb last time we were in J-tree.
On our second day climbing, we started at the "Hall of Horrors" area. Mark and Scotty immediately got on a pumpy sport route called Jane's Addiction, and at 5.11b, was harder than I wanted to get on! I used the time to sketch and take photos. Here are a couple sketches from these photos:
On the third climbing day, I actually got some climbing in, but in the afternoon I took the time to do a study of a visiting bird, a Joshua Tree, and a Number 3 Camalot.
Once I got home I was able to go through the photos I took, and draw and paint some of my favorites, including this of a blooming beavertail cactus:
