The Peruvian Apple Cactus (Monstrosus) has some of the most interesting forms in nature. In most of my floral paintings, I employ quite a bit of artistic license. Not so here….it really looks like this. Using the wire for ‘spines’ adds to the realism and the spines can be brushed to create movement.
