Tough desert succulents can inspire beautiful things. A watercolor project I completed while in the architecture program at University of Arizona. We were first instructed to created 3-D modules inspired by various cactus. I dissected an agave, thinking I would be spared from interacting with prickly cactus needles. Instead, my fingers were infected by the poison agave uses to protect itself. Don't worry, I quickly recovered! We formed multiple modules into a wall, intended to shade oneself from the hot desert sun. From there, we painted our final product using blue and yellow watercolors to convey the shadows and light of the white modules. We were not supposed to paint the module from a head-on perspective, I broke the rules and did so anyway. Sometimes, in order to create a beautiful piece of artwork, you have to suffer some discomfort and break a few rules!
Fun fact: if you mix warm and cool tones in a room, you will find that almost everything will match!
