Desert View in the Bend

A new photo of this painting shows the sky a little better without so much glare.

Oil on linen canvas, 24"x24"

This is a repaint of and older piece that was done way to dark and I felt was worth the effort to rework it. I got a little reflection off the right side of the canvas in the sky in the photo but it's the best I could do. I took quite a bit of liberty recreating this work from the original photo which had very little detail in it. I strengthened color and simplified the composition hopefully creating a stronger painting.
