Today I’m sharing Easy Art in 1.2.3 : Simple Succulent. I share step by step instructions so you can make your own inexpensive art work because so often finding art work that you love can cost a pretty penny but guess what… it really does not have to cost much at all! Let’s get started.

Lightly draw out your basic cacti/Simple Succulent shape using a pencil. (I highlighted mine in the graphic below so you could see the light pencil lines.)
Load up your brush with black paint and trace your cacti/succulent pencil lines. If you can do this with a single smooth line, it’s best.
Next, added lines to the interior of your cacti/succulent and paint a basic pot. I was going for a very simplified look on this art work, so the less tinkering the better. Then using your two different shades of green, add the flowers.
For a final touch, add your gold foil to your Simple Succulent. Brush on thin lines of metal adhesive glue and allow to dry until a slight tacky feel. Then, apply your gold foil sheets to cover. Brush off any excess gold leaf and enjoy!
The final product is this gold glimmering cacti/succulent art work!
I love the modern vibe it gives off and I decided I wanted to create a few smaller succulent paintings to go with it.
I painted a simple barrel cacti and a prickly pear. I just need to find the perfect spot to hang them in my home now!
I’m taking requests for next month so be sure to comment below with your favorite paint medium or one you’d like to see me try!
