Watercolor study, Maria Kovalenko Leysens

A quick watercolor study of the landscape on the road from Bakersfield, California to see the big trees in Sequoia a few weeks ago. It was so dry and dusty, more that I remembered from years ago. And the light was so sharp and crisp.  I exaggerated the warmth/color of the grasses with the intent of balancing the deep shadows on the rocks.  Too much? What do you think?
