This stunning painting is of the famous Indonesian left Desert Point located on the island of Lombok. Desert Point is infamous for its fickle nature and famous for its solid hollow barrels when it’s firing. This gorgeous sunset scene is thanks to world renowned surf photographer Matt Clarke and is the first of a series of Desert Point paintings that I’m planning.
This painting has been created with Cobra water mixable oils, on eco friendly Belgian linen stretched on professional quality Queensland re-growth Hoop Pine stretcher bars, Tri-Art eco gesso sludge and Micador FSC brushes. No toxic solvents were used at all in the process. You can check out all of the eco friendly materials I use on the Environment page of my website.
