I'll go on record. I don't regret at all that I obliterated the "real" desert sky color here. I like it much better having taken the image somewhere else. I DO wish that I'd thought of it sooner, so that I could have done a more delicate red wash of a sunset sky - but because I was going over a cerulean and ultramarine wash, I had to get past that. So, it's pretty heavy looking. Surreal. Maybe that's why I like it. It's certainly unexpected. I find myself thinking already of variations this may inspire - just not now, too many irons in the fire this month.
