One of the lessons in the Kit and Clowder Elements of Nature class is the coloring of a succulent.
This is really a practice of transitioning two very different colors into each other and applying depth to the fleshy leaves with shading.
I had printed this image out a while ago while I was still using the Canson XL Drawing paper and so it was also interesting to use it again for this image. I most definitely prefer the toothier paper that is the Strathmore Paint Pad for laying down layers of color.
