Today I am sharing my Easy Art in 1.2.3 : Simple Succulent wall art. I share step by step instructions on how to draw and paint small succulent plants and cactus, so that you can make your own inexpensive art work. Because so often finding art work that you love for your home can cost a pretty penny but guess what… it really does not have to cost much at all! Let’s go ahead and get started.
Today is the fourth post in this mini series of Easy Art. I have had such a fun time creating all kinds of different and new art work!

How easy is it to make wall art? Well, let’s get into the steps right now.
Start by lightly drawing out your basic cacti/Simple Succulent shape using a pencil. (I highlighted mine in the graphic with gray polka dots, below so you could see the shape more easily.)
Then, 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. Just go with big arching lines.
Next, added lines to the interior of your cacti/succulent and paint a basic pot shape. I was going for a very simplified look on this art work, so the less tinkering with and perfection the better.
Then using your two different shades of green, add the flowers.
For a final touch, it is time to add in the gold foil to your Simple Succulent.
Note: The gold leaf goes everywhere, so be sure to brush it off near a trashcan or even outside.
The final product is this beautiful gold glimmering cacti/succulent piece of 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 on smaller canvas’. 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!
