Flowering Cactus

Since I appear to be "in to" cactus for a bit, did an adjustment to this 2004 painting which was used as a seasonal greeting card for an international corporation. I tried to put a little more depth into the shadows and also bring out the petals of the blossum. I believe it makes for a more dramatic look.

Great deepening effect in the throats of the flowers now. It is fun to revisit old paintings and apply newly-learned techniques, almost always makes a big difference. This was a good painting before, even better now!
