Sylvester Palm

purchase here
The flora and fauna of the desert are so beautifully different than anywhere else!  This may be my first palm painting ever - and what a special palm!  Inking and painting until form and color align, I find there are some differences in this climate.  The paint truly dries as I work!  Wet paint does not stay wet for long!  The colors are grayed down with plenty of dusty reds involved. The birdsong is also very different, and the hummingbirds fly swiftly around my head as if I'm a flower!  They must not be used to the stillness of an artist at work!  Looking forward to mastering the desert!  Painting number 2273 in 2273 days.
