Barker Dam, also known as the Big Horn Dam, is a water-storage facility located in Joshua Tree National Park in California. The dam was constructed by early cattlemen, including CO Barker, in 1900. It was raised in 1949.

The area offers a great opportunity for all the elements to come together and present a  cheerful harmony of colors.


Artwork Details

The work is not done in layers instead the artist spends considerable time to achieve the right outcome with just the right number of strokes. The paint is premixed, brushstrokes are well planned and strategically placed, these are loaded with paint to offer a 3-D aspect to the application.

This painting is impressionistic landscape artwork similar to other ones in the series of National Parks. Bhavna chose to paint this landscape in the peak daylight scene. The colors are brighter and sharper as seen, not as actually are. The focus is on the peace and delight offered by the quiet landscape scene.

As always, the best quality artist grade material and utensils are used to make this painting possible.

This artwork can be recreated on larger sizes. Similar pieces are available in small, medium (up to 24″), and larger sized high-quality giclee prints. This painting is unframed.
