The painting was completed for a young couple who wanted to remember their trip to the desert. Unfortunately, I had never been in the desert myself, so I spent quite some time researching whether the stones there looked red-orange, grey or black. I looked for quite a few pictures on the Internet, but I couldn't decide, because some had reddish, others black rocks. They end up being painted a reddish brown, as our couple remembers them.
Tole sliko sem dokončala za mlad par, ki si želi spomin na svoje potovanje v puščavo. Ker sama v puščavi še nikoli nisem bila, sem kar nekaj časa raziskovala, ali so kamni tam videti rdeče oranžno, sivi ali črni. Poiskala sem kar nekaj slik na internetu, a se nisem mogla odločiti, saj so nekatere imele rdečkaste drugi črne skale. Na koncu so pobarvane rdeče rjavo, kot se jih spomni naš par.
I personally don't think the rocks are that important. But I do hope they will notice that the camel is smiling.
