Badlands is my newest painting!
|Badlands 18" x 24" / 46cm x 61cm|
I don't do paintings of badlands formations very often. Frankly, badlands have a LOT of stuff to paint, and sometimes I'm just not patient enough, although I know I have to be to get the look I want.
I think I like the way this one turned out!
