Cactus at Sunset

WhenItRainsItPours 17 Jan 2019

First attempt at using black acrylic to create the atmosphere. I'm using "value" canvasses so it definitely could have taken the paint better. I'm also left-handed so i tend to have to follow along with Bob, but do it in reverse.

As I was going with this painting, I wanted more depth and I wasn't sold on the cacti. So I went with more rock formations and by the end when i showed my wife, she told me it looked like Doctor Who's home planet. Not even sure what that is, but I'll take it!

Your foreground came out exceptionally well

I like the “reverse” version - well done.
