Anasazi study

Years back I was hiking in Southern Utah and saw this painting left by the Anasazi indians up on the cliffs in the distance. I decided to climb up to them and get a closer look. The figures turned out to be as tall as me. This is one of the photographs I took that day. I recently drew directly on top of a color copy of it as a way to study the shapes. Sometimes drawing feels like it's an extension of my sense of touch. Drawing on top of images I want to get to know better helps me find a way inside, so I can understand it in my own way. This drawing is pinned up in my studio.
