El desierto pintado:  Any artist that has ever mixed his paints the old fashioned way from pigment powder will feel the 'painted desert' aptly named... The fossilized dunes appear fashioned from layers of such powders, like the sand pictures that you can turn upsidedown to watch the coloured crystals flow into one another.  Earthy ochres, sepia, chocolate, cream and gold dominate the landscape, but in places the reds, purples and turqoise give the dunes an unearthly glow.
