Cactus Monday - Crested Saguaro

Teri's Crested Saguaro was the inspiration for this sketch. I used the colored markers again. I am having fun with these. Happy Cactus Monday.

Julie, these markers are Crayola washable markers. I must have bought them for my Grands at some time. I just decided to try using them. I have been having fun.

Happy Cactus Monday!
I can see why Teri had inspired you.
The sky watch piece plus cactus from her are so beautiful!!!
I love the different shades of green that you employed here.
So fresh and encouraging!!!
I also love the vibrant sun (like eggyolk) that you have incorporated here, so sunny!!!

One would think you lived in the Tropics with these bright - vibrant colors, since that is how it is there.

I do like the stylization of your crested saguaro. I think some kind of magic or higher power is in the air... Have a HCM, Lisa!
