Not A Cactus, A Cactis


Sometimes, I want to make art, but my creative juices have taken a break. That was the case the day I painted this picture. So I chose a color and started painting little round blobs, which turned into little cacti. I started off light and watery with the green, let it dry, and then did more layers on parts of the cactus to make it have shading and depth. Then I added little dots of fuchsia, which became flowers. While that was drying, I painted the ground and some blue sky. I also then outlined the cactuses with a black pen, making sure to also draw prickles. I don't really know what "You're My Cactis" means, but that was what floated into my mind. It was a fun painting!
