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