Desert Music

Desert Music measures 36 x 36 x 1.5 inches. This painting is rich in detail and bold in color. I have yellow trumpet flowers growing in my backyard. Those flowers inspired this painting.

What's my process?

Every painting starts with a detailed drawing. I'm free to explore. I can move lines and change the placement of shapes. When I'm happy with my drawing, I use the grid method to transfer my drawing to the larger canvas.

Then I spend time with my color wheel. With Desert Music, I painted a wash of light-yellow, light-green and light-blue on my canvas. Then I stood back. I decided to bring in richer golden tones and richer blue tones.

Can you hear the melody while gazing at Desert Music?
