Ok friends – cactus time. I love these cacti because there are so many different shapes, colors, and lines we get to play with. This style is definitely more illustrative than realistic (that just means that we don’t focus too much on light/shadow and form – it’s like a simplified version) but it’s a good thing! When you let things be a bit more illustrative then you get to make some decisions as a creator – you want a blue cactus?! COOL – paint it! You want orange leaves randomly sticking out of different cactus – Awesome! Add it in! This is a project where you can change colors as you go, put things where you want them and play around! If you are not yet comfortable making those decision on your own then just follow along with me and we will get this colorful desert cactus world created!
