an interesting exercise is to create images with colors they are not too exciting. like in this case just different ‘muddy’ shades of brown / grey. what makes it even more challenging is not to include exciting shapes at all. what I did in the following roughs – it’s basically craquelure with a bit of a texture from my brushes and a nicely contrasting sun.

thanks for the beautiful simplicity with nearly monochrome colors…
it makes me remember my vacation trip to death valley and zabriskie point.
