  • Details
    This is an original acrylic painting made by me, Sierra Miller. This is a painting of a round cactus ( or a Prickly Pear cactus to be more exact) on a yellow background with pretty little daisies. This is on a 20" X 12" stretched canvas.

    The cactus is layered with two shades of green that makes it pop against the bright yellow background along with the white flowers. I started by painting the whole canvas yellow. I wanted it to be bright but still have a natural yellow look to it. So, I mixed a dark yellow with some white to get that color. I then drew on big round half-circles connecting. For the cactus, I then mixed together a light green with white to make it even lighter. My favorite cacti are the Prickly Pear because of their beautiful green color. I tried my best to get as close as I could to the beautiful light green. I first used a sort of darker shade for it to be outlined, while also filling it in. I then used a lighter shade to fully fill in the cactus to make it more dimensional. Once that was done, I then started on the flowers. I love daisies, as you can probably tell in many of my paintings. I thought that they would be perfect to cover up some of the blank space without taking away from the cactus. Because of not only the background but especially the cactus is so light, I thought that adding any sort of abstract element would take away from the main focus. I just used normal white with little yellow middles for the flowers. I think it fits well with the yellow background.

    I love doing cactus paintings, this time I wanted to do a different kind of cactus. Because, like I said up above, Prickly Pears are my favorite, I thought I should try my best to do one. Growing up in the desert they are all that you see and each one has their own unique quality about them which makes them so pretty to look at. I am so happy how it came out that I definitely will be doing more of this kind of cactus while also continuing to paint more cacti in the future.

    This painting is perfect for a kids room or even for the cactus loving person in your life. It's very bright, very happy, and gives off an all-around good feeling. It's a really great size and would be perfect wherever you chose to hang!

    All my stuff are my own designs! I mostly do abstract paints. All paintings are one of a kind!
