Cactus Loving

My little cactus family were growing out of their teeny pots so I picked up some new ones from Petersham Nurseries and painted them different patterns in the garden last weekend. I’m really pleased with how they look, especially styled with a few treasures I picked up from the beach in Zanzibar last year.

I painted them all white then used a black Sharpie pen for the dots, a fine paintbrush for the dashes and stripes (keep the stripes one really dry for the effect I got) and then dipped the fourth one in duck egg blue.
