I thank all of those who reciprocated to my request in my last post, truly appreciated!
It has been more than 2 years that a bag of sand that I bought from Michaels Art store hid in a dark corner of my cupboard untouched, gathering dust literally! My dear blogger friend Ishrath's lovely sand painting motivated me so much,( she is one amazing artist!) I searched for the long forgotten sand bag and decided to give a try for a sand painting. And, what is a better subject than to go for the land of sand, Oman, where I have been living now.
Wahiba Sands make a mesmerizing landscape along the eastern coast line of Oman.The most incredible sand dunes ever, these stretch as far as an eye can see and present a spectacular sight with the sun playing drama on the warm colors and patterns. The color keep changing from dull gold to bright orange and I have exaggerated the colors and abstracted the shapes to my fascination! A delight for any artist, it was a challenging and a great creative time with these paintings where I have mixed acrylic paint with sand, anchored on heavily gessoed canvases, size 20 by 16 inches and two of 8 by 10 inches. Hope you enjoy:-)
