I thought I would try a cactus pear. The colors are beautiful, and the shape and texture is great. Yes, they are prickly..... note to self, "Don't touch a cactus pear. That's why they call them prickly pears..... they have pricklies, and they hurt!" This one started out with a very strong shadow, too strong actually. I went in and lightened the value and I like it much better.
I used Unison, Mount Vision, Terry Ludwig, Girault, Grumbacher, and Art Spectrum pastels
