My previous doubts quickly diminished at the point when I began dabbing orange over approximately 50% of the surface.

The orange paint really helps to kill back the yellowish colour and also helps to provide a warm look to the desert.

This photo demonstrates what a massive difference the orange makes to the overall effect (only the board in the centre right of the photo has been Tangoed).

Finishing touches to the desert ravine this evening, a light dry brush with pure white.

Although green vegetation is sparse, the desert look can be enhanced by a few odd clumps of arid looking grass and plants.

It's certainly looking barren and sun baked with the white rocks really standing out.

To add a little more cover to the desert, I have used the same painting techniques on these pre-cast rock formation.

Picked up these little plastic desert plants from eBay (80p each), but not sure if they work with the overall theme.

Was hoping the plants would break it up a little and add some points of interest.

Those battlefield in a box pieces work really well with your scheme.

They are great looking rocks, plus they take the paint well.
