Series of Succulents

I started this little series of paintings back in May. Since then they have sat around in various places, almost complete but not quite. I finally got around to finishing them off this week and listing them in my Etsy shop!

I started these paintings at the end of May, which is a hectic month for me so I was looking for something calm and zen to paint. Succulents caught my attention because there are so many different kinds and they are so individual and unique. I'm generally not a huge fan of painting still life's but every so often I enjoy a little experiment.
I worked on them at the same time to keep the colour theme cohesive. I splattered the background with the paintings side by side which made the background process quicker....even though it  took me 4 months to actually complete them. Let's face it, I'm really good at procrastinating! 
I now have them listed in my Etsy shop in separate listings. As cute as they look all together I feel that they will most likely sell individually, although I'd be willing to give a deal to anyone that wants the whole set!
