Desert Shack

Desert Shack

It’s been awhile since I have been in the Southwest, but today my mind went their while the sky here was gray and cloudy. I got to thinking about those neat skies out there and the abandon desert shacks.

Watercolors on 140 lb. watercolor paper.

  1. you have done a good job capturing the essence of the sand and the grass in front of the shack. Over-all – good job.

  2. This one is so Debbie! I was drawn immediately into the shack. I wanted to climb to that hilltop and look around. Most? I love the shapes you use when you do a piece that value speaks. Deep darks set against the light areas. Dramatic. Thank you!

    • There are many mountains that can be hiked in Arizona, and I’m sure you would enjoy it if you were to ever go there. I’m glad you like this painting, Leslie, I was having fond memories of the place the day I painted it. Thank you for the lovely comment!

      • I have been to Arizona many times. My parents lived there and my sister lives there, now. I only lasted 6 months when I gave it a go. Nice place to visit but I miss the midwest ….and it is way too HOT!

      • Way to hot is precisely the reason why I don’t live there anymore. Lol.
        I have a son, few brothers, sister and some nieces and a nephews that live out there. I don’t know how they can stand the heat. Though my son is wise and lives in Northern Arizona where is is much cooler.
        Hot! I agree.

  3. I like the dramatic sky in this one. Looks kind of ominous.

    • It was meant to look that way, Binky, and thank you so for saying so. Always good to see you stop in, Binky!

  4. wonderful Deb! I really enjoy the color pallete you have chosen.. so lovely and warm…

    • I needed a change is color and being that I wanted to do a shack in the desert was the perfect opportunity. Thank you for the comment, Tracie!

  5. You know I have a thing about empty barns and buildings. This one gives me the chills. Fabulous sky and values. Great work Debbie.

    • Yes, I do know you do, Keith; and isn’t this one a real spooky looking shell. Ha, I may have painted it, but if I was around it in real life I would not dare myself to go in and have a look around. Thank you for the kind comment, Keith! It’s so good to hear from you again!!

    I really like this one. Overall I like a different style of painting, but this one really brings me into the location.

  7. Hi Debbie, This reminds me of the night scene that I did a few weeks ago. yours has wonder textures and earthly colors. Very nice!

  8. I like the country feeling to this one, great work.

    • Thanks Alonso; this would be the desert’s country, so to speak. Thank you for your kind comment, Alonso!
