Color Palette: Desert Cactus

I’m always drawn to artwork with interesting color schemes, but I find it challenging to come up with them. I started looking for inspiration in some of my photos. Often the results are surprising; the colors that spring up with my eyedropper selections aren’t always the ones my brain tells me are there. Unless I’m thinking about a holiday illustration, a red and green theme wouldn’t be the first thing I’d consider. These hues bring to mind things like watermelon, tropical gardens…or maybe a berry-loving turtle (of which I’ve known a few).
