How to paint textures when there are none. How to paint contrasts when there are neither... A strange experience, moreover that all the colour mixtures have Naples Yellow in them... Creating a dull hazy suffocating ambience.... The textures are in the subtlety of the hues and he slight rippling of the water in some areas.

Calima is meteorological phenomenon that occurs when Sahara sand is blown over in great quantities and diffuses the view and reduces it to a plain and dull experience. Very interesting to paint.

Plein air painting done with palette knife.
