Surreal Joshua Tree Watercolor

Surreal Joshua Tree Watercolor, originally uploaded by Melsky.

This is my first new painting for quite a while. I started and finished it this weekend.

It is watercolor over pencil and I didn't do any ink lines on it. I wanted to do a familiar subject but with new materials and style.

I have been accused of laying watercolor on with a trowel. Yes, I know that watercolor is supposed to be much more watery, but this is the way I do them.

I tried doing my tumbleweeds in a new style. They look just like cabbages! Little desert cabbages. That's a funny image.
