Umber sunset is painted from one of the most unusually colored skies I’ve ever seen. A dust storm created a dark brown swirling foreground, (rather than the usual beige-out we get when we get a haboob coming through), with creamy gold clouds poking through at the back. I also created a refractured watercolor from this scene. Sadly the 10′ tall creosote bush that stars in the bottom corner is no longer there, it was uprooted when George’s house was built.
excellent. every once in a while you open a new door. this is one of those times.
Thank you, JJ.
