Day 14 Dune Shadows

30 Paintings in 30 Days
Day 14
Dune Shadows
8" x 8"
oil on canvas

I enjoyed painting and experimenting with a cloudy day and sand dunes so much  that I wanted to paint another one today.  I am discovering different blues to use in the sky to make the clouds pop.  My challenge in painting is also with contrast and depth.


  1. One of the most difficult painting challenges seems to be (for most of us anyway) painting sand dunes, shadows in sand, plants in sand...but you definitely achieved it in this painting and the previous one. Just lovely!

  2. Thank you so much, Laurelle. My 30 day challenge is not only to paint everyday but paint things that I find difficult. It means a lot to see you comment.

  3. Your sky caught my attention, in the thumbnail. Seeing the grasses, the sand, with reflected blue... just wonderful work :)
