Week #3 Friday Challenge, sorry its a bit late- Succulents

This week as I push through the heat I thought it would be nice to paint succulents or cactus. Those amazing plants that are able to thrive most weathers. There are so many different varieties, textures, colors to choose from so have fun!!! Make sure when you are painting these beauties that you notice the blue greens and the tips of color hidden on the leaves and sometimes the stems.

Nice contrast will help you get depth in your paintings. See how dark it is where the stems meet in the middle? That gives you depth! I also started to paint some of the dead leaves. I have added some photos for those who are not near a succulent, and yes they do bloom!
