Alex wanted a cactus while we were out shopping at the home improvement store this week. He named him “Mr. Yellow.” It must be a boy cactus.

One of my favorite forms: ink and wash! and a lovely contour drawing. Thanks so much for showing us.
Thanks! I’m having fun playing with my water brush and my Lamy Safari fountain pen.
Nice ink and wash, cactus is a surprising subject to illustrate, I used to live in the desert and liked to sketch cactus. for as simple as they look they are quite complicated. It took me a while to figure out why- it is because most people do not know what a cactus really looks like and you must include enough line work to tell them, without over doing the sketch.
Nice sketch you did here!
