I love the way succulents look – their petals so soft but the tips usually colored and sharp. Very interesting plants. I knew this painting was going to be a big challenge as there was so much tonal range in the petals from white to soft greens, and dark greens to almost black. I spent a good deal of time on this painting juggling the mid tones and darkening up the darkest areas and started to feel at risk for overworking the painting. I feel like I could try this subject again and still learn from it.
