OSWOA - Mirage 1

I started a series of seven similar paintings with Neil Broadfoot last year in a colour and composition workshop.

The basis for this painting was originally called Colour and Composition 2 (see post on 15 December 11).

It was just yellow washed into the top of a piece of paper.

I thought of the distant mountains I saw from the hotel room when we were in Las Vegas a number of years ago and the miles of desert surrounding the area. This is the result, a small oasis in the desert reflecting the sun.

If you would like more information about OSWOA please go to my post on 12 March 2010.

The OSWOA shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Windsor & Newton paint on 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $30.00 and sold unframed.
