For the background I chose a pure Venetian red (red oxide) to create a natural earthy feel with a warm kind of a "brick-red" look. Venetian red was a very popular choice during the Renaissance era and can be seen in many Italian paintings.
The saguaro cactus is the official Arizona state flower and this majestic and iconic cactus has been an ongoing theme that I often return to and explore with paint. ~ Sue Dranchak
