Desert Tune

Imagine warm, but crisp fresh air... a Desert Tune being played... and far away there is a caravan of camels crossing the desert in this sand dune setting! And now look at the painting... don't you think you have already reached your destination!?

 By the way, I got the reference image from the weekly challenge on Wetcanvas online artist community. Click on this link to see reference images and the challenge if anyone is interested in following:
It was hard to choose an image for reference since all of them are so good. But I setteled for this sand dune, since it reminded me of the trip to Jaisalmer, Rajasthan on sand dunes. We had sooo much fun there, there was no sign of any vegetation and everywhere there were big and small sand dunes. We spent hours climbing the sand dune and then rolling down and then back again. Fun fun...
Normally I should have posted a picture at 2 hours into the painting, but I lost track of time as I did a little bit in the mornings over three days. I believe it must have taken me about 6 hours.

Blue Camas Lily Fields

I haven't seen the real beauty of these fields in person. But the photo was so beautiful that I was tempted to paint it. I found the photo reference in Wetcanvas Reference Images.
This feels like a perfect place to go and relax or have a nice picnic or go on a hike!

Daddy's Little Driver

Father's day is just around the corner and this painting is perfect gift!
I painted it from one of the old pictures of my daughter. She used to ride this Jeep on the street in front of our home, and the way she handled it, it felt as if she was flying!
