Portraits of National Parks - # 7 "Joshua Tree National Park, CA"

Joshua Tree National Park is a vast protected area in southern California. It’s characterized by rugged rock formations and stark desert landscapes. Named for the region’s twisted, bristled Joshua trees, the park straddles the cactus-dotted Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert, which is higher and cooler. Keys View looks out over the Coachella Valley. Hiking trails weave through the boulders of Hidden Valley. (Source: Wikipedia)


About the Artwork

This painting is signature landscape artwork I create. I chose sunlight as my guiding tool for the relative positioning of the planes and the rocky background. The colors are often dramatized as seen, not as are with some minor omissions in the selected frame.

The defining brush strokes are bold, loaded with paints, and very pleasing to art connoisseurs. Not sure if you can tell that from the photo, but I invite you to take a closer look when you can!
