View Full Version : Living Desert-Take I

This is another pastel I did in the Living Desert Museum in Palm Desert near Palm Springs, CA. The Saguaro Cactus caught my attention and had to sketch it out. This pastel is 9x12 on Wallis. I titled it "Take-I", because I did a series of paintings in the same area, soon I'll post Take-II. http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/17-Jul-2009/159973-s-Paintings-003.jpg
