Cacti in Spain


Well it’s excellent work Carole, you’ve arrived at some realistic greens and I love that red contrast.

Wow, Carole. This really is an eye-catcher: beautiful shapes and strong colours. Love it!

Beautiful work.

Beautifully blended pastel to form the thickness of the succulent leaves Carole and the vibrant reds contrast so well.

Gorgeous Carole - I admire you doing this in pastel.

Expertly done in pastels Carole, love how you did the little spikes and the flower stamen. Wonderful colours.

In a way it does look seasonal with the reds and greens. Really stands out.

That’s gorgeous Carole. It brings a feel of summer sunshine into our wintry days!

Great Carole, those leaves are particularly good.

This is eye catching, Carole, lovely vibrant colours.

Superb painting and beautifully painted.

Brilliantly captured Carole

Hang on Studio Wall

10” x 12” Soft pastels & pastel pencils. I wanted to paint this cacti in a neighbour’s garden in Spain but didn’t have time so I took some photographs and painted it back home today. I know it’s not very seasonal but I love using the bright colours of Unison pastels.
