DIRECTIONS
 

  1. Trim the watercolor paper to fit the picture frame.
  2. Sketch a cactus on the trimmed watercolor paper. For this project, cartoonish oval shapes were stacked at random to create a prickly pear type cactus. Flowers were added to the tops of some rounds and the cactus was drawn inside a flower pot.
  3. Mint and Deep Green from the Cornucopia Paintbox® and Lime Pastel from the Primary Pastels Paintbox® were used to color the body of the cactus with Art Daubers.
  4. Warm Violet from the Primary Pastels Paintbox® was used to color in the flowers of the cactus.
  5. Red Barn and Dark Brown from the Cornucopia Paintbox® were used to color the flower pot.
  6. Using the fine tip marker, trace around the cactus, flowers, and flower pot. This will help the drawing really pop! To add extra dimension and character, add some V shapes and dashes throughout the body of the cactus and allow some to cross over the outline.
  7. Once finished with the marker embellishments, place the picture in the frame and enjoy!
