I used pure burnt sienna for the background color to create an earthy, warm atmosphere. Burnt sienna also creates a nice contrast to the turquoise-ish 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 from that time. The Barrel cactus is been an ongoing theme that I often visit in my artwork.
