Painting #62 Cactus Shadows
I love this painting. It turned out way better than I planned.
I took my reference photo before we left Arizona because I loved all the shadows and wondered if I could get good results.
I painted the shadows first which I rarely do, then I used plastic wrap on the wet painting for texture. (Reference idea came from Karlyn Holman's book, "Watercolor, The Spirit of Spontaneity")
I painted the purple prickly pear cactus in one sitting and quit while I still liked it.
