Impulse buyPosted: December 18, 2016
I went to the store to get an ice scraper and ended up with a Christmas cactus in my shopping cart. The plant was so tropical, so exuberant in its blooms and so very unlike the reality of the blustery day outside that I had to bring it home. I’m not that good with houseplants so I thought it might be a good idea to paint it immediately in case the flowers start dropping off. Painted in a Handbook watercolour journal, 10″ x 8″, using a lot of Quinacridone Rose for the blossoms.
