My painting of a blooming desert cactus turned into a medley of experimenting with different techniques, so I've taken close-up photos to show what I tried and learned. And will use again in upcoming projects.
Actually I kind of like the sum of the parts over the whole piece! I will probably turn them into cards or tiny paintings. Or use as backgrounds for or parts of another project. I rarely throw anything I've painted away, but instead find ways to recycle and repurpose my artwork.
