"Desert Cactus"


Oil on panel, 8"x8"
The reference photo for this piece was taken in Big Bend under complete cloud coverage... it was difficult to discern between light and shadow in areas so I had to punch the color and contrasts to give the impression of some sunlight.

I like the dimensional quality of the cactus, especially the lighting. Nice

I am enjoying looking at your blog and I espcially like the cactus here! the subltle color changes and light in this one makes it really work well!
