Prickly Pear 4

Acrylic on gessoboard - 18 x 24 in - 2015

I wanted to capture the somewhat- dizzying angles and shadows that occurred when this prickly pear cactus grew out of a hillside. I was also interested in the almost translucent red-orange spines, and their contrast with the green pads of the plant. I worked with layers of acrylic and texture to realize the effects.
