Chambers - stage 1

Taking into account the current climate of fear and paranoia I will lay off the threatening clouds (for a while) and do something softer and less threatening, a petrol station out in the boonies of Arizona on a dusty late afternoon. I'm after a particular warm feeling to this one which somehow reminds me of holidays (remember them?) in hot climates about five in the afternoon as the sun gets lower in the sky and a lovely yellow/pink light suffuses the landscape... Egypt comes to mind.
Chambers is the name of the small group of buildings in Arizona just off Route 66.
This is the tonal underpainting stage where it was first "drawn" up with a small bristle brush using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin in the morning session, then in the afternoon I put in the tone with a rag and brush using the same paint mix.
