# 13 My flowering cactus

My cactus plant flowered for the 1st time...I am really thrilled! It opened up for a few hours and then went back into this closed form. We are in the middle of the monsoons here so possibly it hasn't been dry enough for the flower to stay open. But it is beautiful as it is! It was a quick painting and I can see that I haven't got enough 'depth' in it. The paper was also not a very good one, so I couldn't do anymore work on it. A great lesson learnt...don't use rubbishy paper for watercouours!!!

Gosh! the paper is so thin, that I am afraid these cactus needles will go through. Great Job! Thanks, Irina (www.IrinaSztukowski.com)
