I am so fortunate to live in a part of the world where the outside is pleasant and physical distancing doesn’t restrict painting, even with a friend 6 ft away.
On one of my early morning walks the rising sun (well risen to be honest) caused the prickly pear to glow against the dark background of vegetation
I love working with the palette knife but my early ventures have been less than satisfying. Today was the first time I felt as though I was working with the knife, paper and watercolor. It’s early days, but the glimmer of confidence has been nurtured. This was my second attempt at capturing the scene. I consciously tried to move away from literal realism.
Chedda, felt pretty comfortable with these prickles too😉
