Barrel Cactus Study

I see lots of barrel cactus fruit and they all seem to have the yellow fruit on th stop. When I looked closer I thought it might be interesting to do a macro study of them.

This is done in my beta Stillman & Birn sketchbook. I fell so in love with this sketchbook I ordered a larger size to take home with me.

The frame, text and watermark mean I am playing/learning my new iPad apps.

Another Happy Cactus Monday


  1. looks great, curious that it leans to the southwest, towards the sun?

  2. Yes, toward the sun. Thanks Laurie.

  3. Another great cactus sketch Teri! How lucky you are to be able to see these up close and personal.

  4. Wonderful sketch. It made me look up the Barrel Cactus -- an amazing plant -- and I love the personality of your drawing. The yellow frame works well.

  5. Thanks everyone. I do love my cactus.
