For Day 9, a small barrel cactus. I love the round form of this cactus. A little thorny ball. They are pretty when you see them in groupings. Some look yellow because they have so many thorns.

I used Master’s Touch regular watercolor paper. I think the paper texture is less noticeable with this than it is on the premium paper. In the close-up, you can just barely see a horizontal pattern. More noticeable is the vertical texture. It is very visible in person, on the darker colors. But I don’t mind it.

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.
