New Cactus Painting

Today I finished a cactus painting I started at the beginning of this month. It always feels good to complete a piece and to start a new one. It's the in-between that has so many ups and downs, little hurrahs and doubts, accomplishments and frustrations . .  .well, you get the picture!

"Sunwashed Cactus" is done on Arches 300 lb. cold press watercolor paper.
