i havnt decided what I want to do with the rest of the painting near the road needs much more details and such

Some suggestions what to do with the road area:

Maybe a cameltrain silhouetted against the desert?

Or turn the road into an oasis with date palms reflected in the lake (you can get an idea from this pic)

Or it could be where the desert meets the sea (lose the road altogether).;)

Juicy. I like the chevron motif you have going, with the subtle variations in each.

Cool. :D :D :D

You're welcome.
For some more inspiration for anyone wanting to paint desert scenes this National Geographic presentation is fantastic:

Sunsetdreams, whatever you decide to do, may I suggest using another "layer" to do it? That way you can try different ideas without affecting what you have so far. I used the chalk tool to bring out a detailed look with the metallic setting turned up some. It gave me a defined look. looks great, good luck with the rest of it. I can't wait to see your Christmas painting.
