Cactus Tuesday

5" x 7" watercolor on Winsor Newton hot press in my new fold up sketchbook. It took all four of these to get one that had a more loose feel to it... may have to do with becoming familiar with the subject.

EDM #179 Draw an Onion

I had no art materials... just a hard dull pencil and pen. Onions were right in front of me and I remembered it was a new EDM topic. 3' x 4's

Ball point pen shaded, sepia added and warmified in Picassa.

Cactus Monday

I have lots of this type of cactus. They have small cati grow around the base of the plant and have a tall red orange bloom. It may be considered a succulent? Watercolor in raffine sketchbook 5 x 7"
