Petroglyphs, Camels and a Wadi Rum Pallette

19 Dec


Husb and I camped overnight in the Wadi Rum desert last week. The colours were wonderful, so complex. I didn’t have time to do “landscape” paintings so throughout the trip I focused on capturing the colours around me with Winsor & Newton watercolours onto Somerset paper, creating my own locality pallette.

There were camels…. it was like the Lawrence of Arabia film. Wadi Rum is where he did a lot of his shenanigans.



And there were ancient petroglyphs, featuring camels.

    I love your palette colors. Don’t know how color-accurate the photos are, but I certainly see relationships between your watercolors and the colors in the photos.

      Thanks. The photos are fairly accurate but I did the watercolours in a different part of the desert in mid-afternoon – the light was better and there was more variation x
