Flowering Cactus, 6 x 6
After several months of membership in Plein Air Austin I finally went out to paint on one of their Thursday paintouts and had a great time. The photo above is my reference photo; I painted a fast painting outside, and came home and painted this one using both the photo and my first stab. I really worked on composing this one with several of the techniques Jill Carver taught in class and others I learned recently from Laurel Daniel. I'm pleased with the outcome.
