When taking a photograph of a windmill at El Roque near El Cotillo, I stepped back very slightly and my leg brushed against this prickly pear! Hubby, Ian, then had to spend some time trying to get all the small, thin, hair-like thorns out of my soft jersey trousers, leg, ankles and sandals! Whilst doing so they then stuck into Ian’s fingers and hands! But out of pain can come beauty!
Under the Hood
Having not done any art at all for some time, I needed something quick and simple to get my juices flowing again! So just added a light pencil sketch and canvas texture, very simple but I think effective!
