|Saguaro at Night, 6x6"|
This is of a saguaro whose photo I took during a morning walk with my camera, right in my neighborhood! Of course, I put a fun starry night sky in my painting.
|Map the shadows|
|Paint the brownish areas near the spines|
|Paint the greens|
|Paint the spine holes|
|Paint the sky|
|Spatter in the stars|
|Deepen the shadows on the saguaro, finished painting|
Then I declared it finished!
This painting is destined to be donated to the Scottsdale Artist's School to support the school. They have a program where they accept 6x6" art from teachers and students, and sell this art for a very modest and affordable price. The proceeds support the school, which is a small, independently-run school.
