Botanical Watercolor ~ Cactus

Screenshot 2019-12-19 at 12.13.47 PM

My artwork has mostly cool tones. It is a green cactus in a blue pot, and the cactus has lots of spikes. The background is green, yellow, and brown. I made my artwork with paper, watercolor, and sharpie. I used a wet on wet technique for the watercolor. I tried to make my artwork calming and peaceful. I was inspired by cactus’ because they’re calming and pretty to look at. My goal for this artwork was to create an artwork of a plant using at least one watercolor technique. I don’t really love how my artwork turned out but it could’ve been worse. I think next time I won’t get the paper quite as wet before adding the paint.
