After another day of scorching desert heat, the sun sets amid a spectacular display of glorious rosy colour! Clouds and sand dunes merge into one shimmering vista! This collection of designs was inspired by my appreciation of the perilous beauty of the Australian landscape, in all it's many moods! This is an original hand-drawn design by Rhonda W. © 2010.

So beautiful, peaceful, and evocative. This carries me back to gorgeous vistas I've seen at sunset. The whole leadlight landscape series is genius. Composition and differing textures make it feel like some areas are actually translucent.
This rosy design is gorgeous Rhonda and perfect for making quilts and bedding! How lovely it would be to wake up and see curtains made of this lovely design, wonderful!

Thank you very much for the awesome comment, Jessie! Your kind words have made my morning much brighter!:-)
This fabric is breathtaking, and I'm not just saying that. I was raised in Phoenix and this reminds me of the sunsets. :) I feel like even a fat quarter of this would look nice framed as an abstract piece.
I am so happy to hear that you like my "Leadlight Landscapes", Nancy! Thank you very much for your kind and thoughtful comment!:-)
While the whole “Leadlight Landscape” collection is beautiful and ethereal, this color version is my favorite. ♡ I especially like the closeup (test swatch).
Thank you so much for the wonderful comment, Winterblossom! I really appreciate you taking the time to share this lovely photo of my design printed on the Faux Suede! I hope that looking at your framed swatch leads you to enjoy many rose-tinted daydreams!:-)

This is a scan of the design in Faux Suede. As you can see it has printed beautifully.The colors are rich and vibrant and the FS feels so nice. Mmm! Rhonda, I am going to frame this and put it up on newly decorated pink poppy wallpaper which is in the same shades of your design.

Love, love, love!
What a great idea Rhonda - to make this into "girly camo pants" for your granddaughter! As soon as I read it I saw it in my mind's eye (having a very visual morning!) and I think it would be a grand match!!
Thank you very much for your warm response to this design, Penney! I have been thinking of using this print to make girly camo pants for my granddaughter.
really lovely design. I can see this used in many ways.
Thank you very much for wonderful comment, Mihaela! Your experience of a desert sunset sounds fabulous!
This reminds me of my first trip to Egypt, driving in a van through the desert. These are the exact colours of the sky and the dunes. I could not stop wonder! This is an amazing design, Rhonda.
Thank you so much for the marvelous comments, Sue Ellen, Penny and Garima!

This is beautiful Rhonda!
Beautiful colour scheme
I really like this new colorway for your amazing repeat. I especially like the inspired little touch of purple that really gets the roses sparkling.
Thank you, Yvonne! I appreciate your kind words very much!
I was reading how you made the design. It is very nicely done! The colors are very pretty.
Thank you for the lovely comments, Dinorah and Victoria!
This makes me think of raspberry sherbet. Glorious colors.
Beautiful combination of textures and colors !
Thank you very much for the wonderful comments, Su and Eloise! I really enjoyed reading your poetic words, Su! That is exactly how I feel when I see a glorious sunset anywhere in any season!
This is so gorgeous!
Gorgeous colorway and fabulous addition to the collection Rhonda. I really like your description too, having spent many a hot day in the desert, wishing I was elsewhere, and then along comes a sunset that makes you forget the day's discomfort as the world drowns into night in wondrous colours.
Thank you, Patrina, Tracie and Claire! It was so nice to read your positive comments! To answer your question, Patrina. This design was originally hand drawn with a fine point felt tip pen on paper. It was then scanned, tweaked for a seamless repeat and digitally coloured.
Love this Rhonda, gorgeous colours and a perfect addition to the collection :) x
I love this! Is this done using paper? I've been exploring paper collage techniques. I love your geometric patterns too, but I am most attracted to organic designs.
Thank you, Sharon, Alex and Carole! Your lovely comments are much appreciated!
oh my gosh! How beautiful!
Very beautiful colours, I bet it's just wonderful on silk!
Thank you Angela! I had a sample of this design printed on the silk/cotton and the the warm sunset colours look gorgeous with the extra sheen. It is now on my "must have more of this" list! :-)
I may like this more than the blue version. So lovely!
Thank you, Anna! :-)
Thank you, Joan! I am glad that you noticed the new colourway of my Leadlight Landscape design! I was looking at a glorious sunset the other day and realised that I needed to do another version of this pattern that would showcase a rosy-glow palette! :-)
I'm always so amazed by this design, in every colorway!
