View Full Version : Desert Pass Painting in a Day

Hi! I did this painting in one day. It's a 5 x 7 acrylic on Canson's canvas card. I think it's Alcoholic Pass in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. I also posted this in the Acrylics forum.

These little minis are fun. I like the whole airy feel you captured, good atmosphere.

Thanks! Yes, they are fun and this one is just the size to keep you working all day, but you still get that "instant satisfaction" of finishing a piece quickly.

You achieved a lot of depth in this piece. I especially love the clouds and the muted colors of the desert. I live in the high mountain desert in Idaho so I know what these scenes look like.

Thanks for the compliment. The actual colors are just slightly brighter than what was scanned. I got a new scanner and it seems to mute the colors a touch.
