Pastel on Canson Mi Tientes (Indigo Blue)
I also struggled with what to do with the texture on the body of the cactus. The actual specimen has a dot like texture. I could not see myself pulling that off without it looking cheesy. So, thank goodness for pastel and it's normal nature of creating a netted pattern. After all the fighting, I'm pretty okay with this painting.
