Camel (30 x 40 cm, oil on canvas)

Like with all of my paintings, I have used the combination of oil paint and pigments plus sand for this one. I created it shortly after a visit to Egypt, and the colors I selected on the basis of colors that you often see there. The background (as you will notice) shows the structure of the canvas, as the paint was applied very superficially, as if it is the wall of an neglected building. The camel appears more like a silhouette, suggesting deformation of the image by hot desert air.IMG_2239
