Weekly Sketch – Cactus Collage – 26/03/2017

I’ve been playing around with painting textures and patterns on paper; then used them to make this cactus collage. The very bright green small cactus arm is one of those coffee cup cardboard holders; I used it to print the green zig-zags on the cactus arm behind it, then decided I quite liked it just as it was painted.

Weekly Sketch – Aloe Collage – 26/08/2016

I really enjoyed making this collage of my potted aloe plant (aloe variegata). Here you can see a watercolour I made of this plant last year – Succulent Splash. It has doubled in size since then.
