Painting Number 6 - Cactus Shadows
I found a photo reference in my tons of cacti photos and thought the shadows would be interesting to paint. I was also fascinated with the cactus bloom growing out of the prickly pear pad, something I don't see very often.
This is painted on Lama li paper which has a LOT of texture and is frequently my choice when painting cacti. I used yellow as the undercoat and sap green for the pads.
