Right before covid-19 hit in the US, my boyfriend and I took a trip to the remote desert in west Texas. While this isn't meant to fully represent that specific biome, I was really inspired at the color and life around us despite how desolate it may have seemed.

I think about this trip a lot now.

West Texas? Needs several hundred oil wells, and maybe a windmill or two "ruining the view" ;-)

Really enjoy this pieces; the broad flat areas of color are very different form your usual approach and work really well for this particular landscape.  They also set off the much-more-detailed shady areas really well.  I half expect a gecko to peek out.

This looks awesome, the style is neat. I like the idea of going for big clusters instead of several color shades for texturing; makes the piece look pretty smooth and readable.

Good job.

+1 to what everyone else said. I like how you mostly avoided AA, and the way the clouds convey perspective despite being just one color is really convincing. Thanks for sharing!

The colors are amazing!

Very good.

Good environment, the atmospheric scattering for the farther away portions of the background help make it feel vast.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful piece along with those memories. Hopefully we'll all make memories soon again.
