Sonoran Desert Painting Series

Desert Muse #4
I am enjoying this small series I am doing of my memories of the Sonoran Desert. I especially like the jewel like tones in this one. I have found that by tearing up small pieces of rice paper and pasting them on the panel first, I get a lovely, absorbent  texture to paint on.

I am keeping this post short today. I have a lot going on.

Have a lovely week!

How wonderful, I was hoping your recent visit would be a source of inspiration. I am completely inartistic but the desert always makes me wish I wasn't. So many subject matters everywhere you look.
