I have always liked the architectural beauty of these succulents. Unfortunately this one eventually succumbed to over watering. However I was able to paint these two studies. The first painting, ’A study i’ I was concentrating on the patterns I saw in the large fleshy leaves. My intention with these two paintings was to interpret what I saw within the plants rather than a botanically accurate copy. I was pleased with the ‘happy accident’ that is the vibrant red background.
