Yet another desert speedpainting

Another desert speedpainting done over lunch. I dont know what my thing is with deserts... 

I think It's the color contrasts of sky to sand to rock, then the shadows, and all the different colors the sand and composition of the desert can take on. 

Then there's time of day, oases, etc. that make deserts something that conceptually you can just do so much with. Also two books that i like (dark tower, and dune) and both set in deserts. So theres that.

Anyway, here's the painting:

[edit] Also here's another done awhile back, again, another lunchtime painting of a desert, really trying to mess with color:
