I was out researching this ‘Prickly Park’ for our Urban Sketching group and just had to stop for a quick sketch of this purple Prickly pear cactus. The perfect job for Cactus Monday 😄
Ink and watercolor on Arches 140# watercolor paper.
A few photos of the park.

I’ve never seen a cactus of this color. So pretty! Also, I like how you added more color once you got home. 😍 🌵

Thanks Carol. Yes, when I added the color at home, it became a truer color. Someday I must paint the beautiful yellow flower with it. It’s so striking.
I bet! Nature sure knows best how to pair such lovely complementary colors!
Wow… pink cactus! How fun! This is beautiful! 😍
