Desert Abandon [Painting] - Final

I took the original photo a few years ago on the way back from a ski trip at Mammoth. This house is just sitting somewhere out in the desert slowly disintegrating.

 

I'm really happy with how this came out -- it's probably tied with the fishing one as my favorite painting to date.

 

I'm pretty proud of how well the colors came out, and how life-like the house looks. I did want to put a little more detail in the scrub brush, but that was proving quite a bit more elusive than I had anticipated.

 

As always what do you think? Anything I could improve on?
