Moon Cacti

Love the vibrant "moons" sitting atop these tiny cacti!  I have three of these at home in yellow, red and red orange, so of course I needed the burgundy one to add to my collection!  This one is a miniature at only 3x3 inches square.  I have sketched quickly with an almost empty black ink fountain pen, watercolored, then added a little more ink from another pen - Robert Oster's Great Southern Ocean.  It is a really lovely ink pushing turquoise, and fun to add to colorful scenes such as outdoor floral work. I don't think I used it all winter, it just didn't match my surroundings.  As spring approaches, I'll be pulling it out more often!  Painting number 2974 in 2974 days.
