End of a Tale

The cactus painting saga is complete, although the process continued to be fraught with challenges.  Apparently, over the holidays the garden is open to visitors on Tuesdays.  Not knowing this, I arrived ready to paint for hours, only to be warned by the gardener to expect several thousand visitors!  Naturally I left before the onslaught.

When I compare the ink study to the finished painting, I like the drawing better.  The composition is stronger; the image has more feeling in it.
