Cactus Monday - Painting in Photoshop

Painting in Photoshop. . . who would have thought?  For the past few years I have been scratching on my tablet mostly in Illustrator and trying to master it, and I forgot about painting in Photoshop like I used to.  I have been inspired by some of the images I've seen created in this program as of late.  Very painterly and beautiful.  So I thought I'd give it a try again.

Here is my creation for Cactus Monday of a blooming prickly pear. . . vector free!  What do you think?

Sketchcrawl at the Talking Stick Resort and Casino

Last Saturday I attended the January Sketchcrawl at a local Indian Casino in Scottsdale.  Just two watercolor sketches completed. . . as I ran my mouth most of the time instead of sketching!  But that's what it's all about, right?

It was nice to meet a few new crawlers, and see some familiar faces from the previous ones.  I didn't do any casino sketches as it was dark in there and crowded.  Above is a sketch of the grounds and another of inside the hotel lobby.  Enjoy!
