Rio Grande Gorge

Another from the past with red. This was painted soon after my move to the Northwest in 1993.
The Rio Grande cuts a deep gash through a vast open plain in Northern New Mexico. When driving to Taos on the 'low' road, it suddenly appears and looks kind of shocking.
watercolor on paper 15"x8"

Red cutter edge… Sharp feeling!

Yes, very shocking. A bleeding gash. But intensely striking, also, the way you've rendered it. Is the whitish foreground snow, or soil, or?
