Sedona Cactus came about when I first arrived in Sedona, I came upon this prickly pear cactus on the side of the road heading down the switchbacks from Flagstaff after just having spent the weekend in the Grand Canyon and decided to paint it in watercolor. I learned this colorful technique from Gordon Haas of the Haas Gallery in Lambertville, N.J. Gordon was the one who taught me to outline my images using a rapidograph pen.
Sedona Cactus was created in watercolor
Sedona Cactus was actually my very first landscape painting I did when I first arrived here in Sedona, so I thought that Sedona Cactus was an appropriate name. As an artist, we are always learning new ways to create new wall art. Taking workshops and having other artist critique our art is the way to see my paintings in a different light. The prickly pear effects were done using a hairdryer to “chase” the color around. What is cool about creating wall art in watercolor is that after it is professionally photographed, I then give my suppliers the digital files, usually 100 megs and larger in 300 dpi for the best reproduction possible. Using only archival materials like ink and substrates to produce fine art prints in many different versions, canvas prints, metal prints and paper. The original framed watercolor is still available.
