I loved this class! I was inspired to make my own painting using images I captured of cacti and succulents in my neighborhood. Below are images of the inspiration (#cactigoals), and three images of my work in process. This was so much fun, I plan on repeating it. I also bought Sara's book for guidance on illustrating other plants, fish, landscapes, etc. If you like this course, I recommend her book as well!

Beyond this class I have had a lot of fun combining watercolor and gouache in other sketchbook paintings, something I never would have considered in the past! Thank you Sara!
