I wanted to convey the heat in my painting, Desert Landscape. After completing my painting I laid a mainly transparent glaze of white over the entire painting. In painting atmospheric perspective, artists paint a light muted blue white to achieve atmosphere. However, I painted a transparent muted yellow over my white to convey heat. Edges of shapes are also soft due to the heat and atmosphere. Dust particles may also be seen. Value contrasts are not marked. English artist, Turner was excellent in conveying atmosphere.
This is a digital painting using traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used virtual brushes and paints (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet).
