Yesterday, I had a mini-sketch session at the Botanical Garden. I tried to use the magical-looking botanicals:
Near the end of sketch-time, we finally ventured into a cactus area. One of the plants that I sketched was tall and amazing. I couldn’t really capture how its body seemed to be dancing. The other giant desert plant was an explosion of long spears. Also very hard to capture. This was the original inspiration for my drawing. Of course I had to stick Porcupette Piddy in there (later) to see how she would like it.
