Design by Rhonda W. © 2010. Dawn brightens the desert sky with gilt-tipped fingers of light.
As dawn brightens the sky with gilt-tipped fingers of light, the desert landscape starts to shimmer and glow in warm golden colours. This set of landscape designs was inspired by my appreciation of the perilous beauty of this "Wide Brown Land" of Australia, in all it's many moods! This is an original hand drawn design by Rhonda W. © 2010.

This design is so lovely Rhonda and so cleverly depicts both the Australian desert and stained glass at the same time.
Thank you very much for your kind and thoughtful words, Tina! I am glad you like my desert designs!:-)
Rhonda I love these desert landscapes! Beautiful colors and textures! Such a wonderful collection!
Thank you very much for your wonderful comments, Winterblossom and Boo! I am glad you are enjoying the desert landscape! (Just make sure you have plenty of water with you when you venture into these arid regions!;-0)
Oh so desert! Wonderful! (Silly me just read the name of your collection - you really have captured the leadlight effect beautifully.) I could gaze at this for hours - just like a soothing desert landscape :)
I feel I am in the desert looking at this design. Love to stay there for awhile.
Thank you very much for your wonderful comment, Janiece!:-)

Mary, thank you very much for your lovely comment!:-)
Love this one Rhonda - in the blues too.
Thank you very much for your wonderful comment, Joan! I am so glad that my design resonated with you! The infinite variety of subtle colours in a deserted landscape was the impression that I wished to convey with this colour palette!

Absolutely wonderful Rhonda. Spent many years in the Pilbara and this fabric says it all.

Beautiful ! Makes me want to jump Inside the picture ! All the different color version are beautiful, !
Thank you, Lisa! It is always nice to receive positive feedback on my designs! :-) I did get samples of this series of designs printed on the cotton/silk and I was very pleased with the way the glowing colours printed on the fabric!

I wonder how your landscape series designs would print out on the silk/cotton mix fabric. Can you imagine how beautiful these designs would look as a scarf or maybe a semi-sheer blouse? I can imagine it - gorgeous!
Thank you very much for the marvelous comment, Caitie!
This is really beautiful, I love all the different layers of patterns and textures. Gorgeous earthy colours too!
Thank you very much for your kind comments, Amy and Tina! If you ever visit Australia, I am sure you would enjoy seeing the incredible variety of scenery that different areas of the country have to offer.
What a gorgeous interpretation of the Australian landscape!
Oh, this whole collection is just beautiful, the different colorways are really lovely, and your description of the designs makes me want to be there!!!! Gorgeous! Australia must be so beautiful!
Thank you very much for the wonderful comment, Morgan! On a recent trip to Central Queensland, I saw rolling vistas of sun-burned, drought-plagued, barren landscapes just like this. During this last week, the area that we visited has had record-breaking rainfall and the land is now inundated by flood-waters! Such are the extremes of nature that Australians have learned to cope with!
This is a lovely, lovely design as are the other color versions. Beautiful. Good job!
Thank you for your positive comment, Mary! :-)
This has a lot of depth, really cool effect!
Thank you for your kind words, Anino!

Lovely afterdawn design. I love the colour waves.
Thank you very much, Joan! I appreciate your kind words and positive feedback! :-)
This almost has an asian feel to the design, when viewed as wallpaper. It is vibrant yet still peaceful.................I've always loved these and stop in to look at them from time to time.
Thank you for the lovely comment, Maria! :-)

Beautiful design! It is different with all the different colors, but works well all the time, giving different time of the day, or different seasons! Very well done! :)
Thank you, Olivia! I appreciate the compliment! :-)
this is beautiful!
Thank you, Jennifer and Aldea! Reading your positive comments brightened my day!
Beautiful! Reminds me a bit of a ted harrison painting / illustrations, probably because of the cloud outlines. Like the other colour variations too.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Karen and Christine!

Rhonda This is a lovely useable design for many quilt projects wonderful colors
Rhonda, this is absolutely gorgeous.
Oops! I just noticed your lovely comment, Ms Eclectic! I appreciate your feedback very much! I agree that it is a useful design, in all of it's colourways. The print can easily be incorporated into pictorial quilts or it can be used to add an interesting visual texture to pieced or appliqued patchwork!
Beautiful! This would be great for patchwork, especially pictorial landscapes in applique or foundation piecing, as well as being a beautiful overall design for home decor.

This is great. I love the colors, the layering and the textures.

The colours in "After dawn" are so evocative of dawn, you can feel the heat of the rising sun, and I love the apparent crinkles in the foreground: how did you get them in there! And it looks even better in the picture of the print.
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment, Jackie.

Thank you for the lovely comment, Claudia.

Thank you for the wonderful comment. I'm still waiting for my swatch to arrive so that it can be proofed. As soon as that happens I will be able to put this design up for sale.
What a fantastic contrast this is to your other version, Another Cold Night in the Desert. Both designs are equally dramatic but the warmth of this version evokes a totally separate set of emotions. How very different the same landscape can seem when bathed in sunlight instead of shadow.

Thank you andsewon very much for your comment on the "After Dawn" design.
Love the colours and the way it appears to shimmer, I agree this would make beautiful for quilting and luxurious bedding - nice warm pallette, well done
Thank you eatsleepsew for your comment on my design. So glad you like the colours.
I love the bright, warm colors that appear in this design!
Thank you potbellybears for your comment. I was actually thinking of patchwork possibilities when I came up with this design.
This would be gorgeous for quilting!!

This is also lovely. "After Dawn" seems like a very good name. the desert is warming up; but not yet scorching hot.
