Holiday Cactus

8" x 10"
Oil on Board

Even though it was a cloudy day, I liked the way the light was barely able to penetrate the cactus paddles while the flowers just kind of exploded with light.  With the number of paddles and flowers and the changing light, this was a difficult subject.  However, I think it turned out well and, if nothing else, it has harmony.  To achieve harmony, I went with another limited palette; phthalo red rose, phthalo green, and ultramarine blue.
