Desert Shadows, by Nancy Plank
Desert Shadows, by Nancy Plank 36" x 48", Oil on Canvas, Contemporary Landscape Painting, Unframed.
This is my favorite title for this painting, because the shadow of the sand looks like water. I also love the coolness of the rocks and sand in shadow with the mighty starkness of the desert in sizzling warm light. There is a magical element of light in shadow which delights me, too.
Curated Description: Desert Shadows is a realistic landscape painting. This unique composition captures rocks both within the shadows and illuminated by the sunlight. The intricate details of the rocks and sand render this work almost photographic.
