Desert Noon

Another in my latest series.  A minimalist impression of the noon time sun in the heat and dust of a sandstorm.  I encountered these from time to time in Arizona.  I wanted to capture the oppressive nature of noon-time in the desert … where it was always good to find some shade for a few hours.  And hopefully have a couple of bottles of water around, as it is very, very dry there.

Others are on this digital minimalist thread and you can find them at minimalist digital art for sale

Weird title, I know.  But this has been a long, long period of little if any creative ideas.

So I took a course in art.  Obviously I do not have the muscle coordination skills of an artist, although I was at one time fairly good at mechanical drawing.  But my short familiarization session seems to have unleashed my sense of — get this – color!

I had always been interested in pattern and form in photography; color came along by accident.  I seem to have awakened an interest in color nowadays — lots of it.

So I experimented with some digital graphic drawing ideas.  There are more floating around in the gray matter and I will get to them as time allows.  Meanwhile – here is Sunset 2.

As my ideas come to mind, here is another in the set this time in shades of tan.
