Desert Sun is another of those that I created on May 17-18. I tried to use some of the colors (acrylic and latex) that are found in the desert in the Four Corners area. I used horizontal, dribbled lines for contours of the rolling landscape and a single, dark brown line at the “top” to simulate the mountains that can always be seen in the distance throughout the Four Corners area. I wanted to give the sun the impression of being dominating, so I made it unnaturally big and roughly textured by laying acrylic paint on thick and then texturing it with a paintbrush. The painting is 24″ x 36″.
