I used pure burnt sienna paint for the background color to create an earthy, warm atmosphere. Burnt sienna also creates a nice contrast to the turquoise hues used in the main body of the cactus. Burnt sienna was a popular choice during the Renaissance era and can be seen in many Italian paintings during that era. The Barrel cactus is been an ongoing theme that I often visit in my artwork.
