Watercolored Sock Cactus

During @jemimah’s watercolor class, I made a sock cactus. The idea came from an ATC I made of a sock cactus for @Lynx2Lancer in the Ongoing ATC swap.

I took the idea of a Christmas cactus -where a cactus is dressed up in Christmas lights- and did the same thing with socks and called it a sock cactus.

Here it is!

It turned out really well! I’m please with it all came together! Now, its hanging on my wall for all to see!

So much fun! Love all the colorful socks, and all the techniques you used to make it especially lively (like the splatters). Very cool!

Nice job! I especially like the shading you did on the brown at the base of the cactus. That, plus the slight shadowing on the right side of the base really add depth and dimension.

Thanks! All I did for the shading was use a darker color on the left and pulled it toward the middle and a lighter color on the right and pulled it toward the middle and mixed them together there.
