This is Escheveria 'Afterglow' - a spectacular succulent growing right outside my front door. It's close to a foot wide. In the late afternoon, the sunlight shines through the transluscent leaves, heightening their many subltle colors - blue -gray lavenders, oranges and yellow. I chose to paint it using a contrasting dark background to heighten the show. The original of this painting was done in pastels.
Though the original is in pastels, the fine art giclee reproduction is done on the highest quality satin finish canvas, and therefore looks very much like an oil painting, with deep and brilliant color. You have your choice of sizes.
