Hand-Drawn Cacti


Sometimes you just want your own little images. Used the book Botantical Line Drawing by Peggy Dean to draw these cacti. Kristina Werner used the book here.



Practiced a bit on typing paper and then went for it. Have no idea what I'm doing, but it was fun to draw these. Colored with Copics. Sentiment from Technique Tuesday.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Accomplished!

Yay, for drawing your own design. I want to do the same. Your drawings and card turn out beautifully.

Joan, when did you discover your terrific talent?

Just wonderful, Joan!! I love your illustrations. Peggy Dean's book has been on my wish list for quite a while. I'd love to learn to illustrate my garden journal. Thank you for the inspiration today! ♡

Joan, I love your cacti. You did a great job! I too get short of breath while walking. But for a different reason than you. I have COPD. My doctor encourages me to walk but I get discouraged most of the time. Take care of yourself. One day at a time.

I'm sorry to read this. I know what COPD is and I know that is rough. I hope you are able to walk even just a little! Hugs

Sheesh, now I want the book and a couple others I saw with it. It never ends! This is so cute and you did a fantastic job with it. I can barely draw stick figures, but maybe with some help... Thanks, Joan!
