Another in the Africa series

I spent the day working on a 30 x 40 canvas of the desert floor and I think this one is working pretty well. I am really trying to create more scale in the painting by diminishing the sizes of the fertile darks and emphasizing the bigger distances of dry open desert. In the next couple of paintings I am really going to try to exaggerate the feeling of great distances of desert and the perils of life in the desert.
