Desert grasses

desert grasses

This is an impression of the pale yellow/white grasses that grow in the desert lands of the east Pilbara in Western Australia. I wanted to show, in an abstract way, the softly waving delicate grass heads growing in a very harsh environment of red earth. I used gouache on paper and tried to find a way of painting these grasses without being too specific or naturalistic.
