As I continue to quite literally grow my portfolio with paintings of succulents, I have quickly become known as the succulent painter on social media platforms such as Instagram and TikTok. My followers constantly ask me about when I am going to post the next video documenting the process of how I make these whimsical paintings.
What they don’t know is how interesting they actually are to paint from the artist’s perspective. Although there isn’t an abundance of deep visual space in the composition, the painting is rich with subtle color variations. Because of this, my time isn’t spent mapping out the composition, but mixing colors and seeing that they blend in an effortless way that is appealing to the eye and spirit.
