 Enjoyed painting this but not very happy with it.  The dunes don't look like any I've ever seen in my life.:)

Nothing wrong with your dune painting, Jill :clap: :clap: :clap:
There are many types of dunes from small dunes to very large dunes, from seaside dunes right through to desert dunes. I've seen many of them. ;)

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Jill, you have done a superb job.   




I have seen sand dunes like that for they are pretty common in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.  Jill, did you not go to the Eastern Cape at all while living in South Africa?

Thanks Dennis.  I was frustrated with colors I was working with and could get the look I wanted.  I also tried a different color paper to see what that would do.  Interesting!

Thank you Patricia.  Where is yours?  Want to see it.
