Learning to Paint?!

Desert(ed) Village
9"x12"





I'm taking a canvas painting class, two lessons so far, and this is what I started working on yesterday. It's from a Nat. Geo. photo (top) of a village built for Bedouins in Yemen, kind of the Arab equivalent of making Indians live on reservations. They didn't go for it and this ruin was the result. I like the quasi- abstract, geometric and haunting look of the image, though mixing the odd palette has been a bit of a challenge.
