Here is my final video of Prickly Pear Blossoms. Instead of doing a compilation of the previous days, I show how I got the dark background and completed the painting. If you have been watching all along, then you will have seen how I created the blossoms in the previous days.

I wanted to make the needles prickly but soft at the same time. The other challenge was getting those yellow blossoms to stand out and still look yellow. I like to think I did it.
