New "Prickly Tower" Contemporary Cactus Painting by Niki Gulley

"Prickly Tower" ©2020 Niki Gulley
48" x 30" Textured Mixed Media Painting on 1.5" wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

I thought that I would try something a little different when I ran across this huge cactus during a trip to Mexico. It was such an amazing sight for its size and beauty that I wanted to enhance that by choosing a low angle and pushing the perspective. Then all that I needed to do was add those dramatic clouds that were cruising by to complete the effect.
