Burnt sienna was used for the background color to create an earthy, warm atmosphere. I use a lot of burnt sienna in my paintings but mainly as an agent to tone down the intensity of another hue. Burnt sienna was a popular choice during the Renaissance era and can be seen in many Italian paintings from that time. The hedgehog cactus is a personal favorite and an ongoing theme that I often visit in my artwork. See more from my Desert Garden Collection. ~ Sue Dranchak
