Pastel Cactus on Pumice, Almost Finished

Well, I am finally approaching the last stages of this cactus painting so I thought I would show my progress so far. This was certainly a lesson in persistence but I have to say that, surprisingly as it seems, after pressing through all the challenges of this piece, I would definitely paint on this surface again. What can I say, at the end of the day, it was worth it.

I snapped this photo in my studio so the colors here aren't as vivid as they are in person. I will post a picture of the final image in about a week. It should be totally complete by then.

As usual, you inspire me. Have you tried the new Yupo paper?
It is a synthetic paper.

I just bought some. If you would like to experiment on it I will give you a sheet. I bought a small tablet of it (20 sheets about 9 x 12), just in case I don't like it. Have not had time to play yet but plan to soon.

This is just beautiful. Love the size, color and textures. Great job! Wished I could see it in person.
