" In the Desert Botanical Garden "
Copyright 2011 J.Bellinger
The second in my desert garden still life series while here in my studio at Celebration of Fine Art.
I was somewhat intimidated to begin such a complex painting but once I laid in the Century plant the rest fell into place. I had fun with the spines on the Hedgehog cactus and Santa Rosa prickly pear cactus. I used fine brush, palette knife, putting painting paint on, lifting paint off..whatever it took to get the effect of light on skinny shapes.
