Stovepipe Dunes

Here’s a painting based on a photo I took out at the sand dunes near Stovepipe Wells in Death Valley.

8x10  oil on canvas

The sun had just gone behind the mountains but because the valley is deep there was still a lot of residual light. In fact, although it took me 30 minutes to hike back to the car, it was still quite light when I drove off. Cool!

I’ve been to DV many times as a photographer but have yet to go and paint. I’m going to put it on my list for next winter.
