THE ORIGINALS - Ruby Ball Cactus


The original of the ruby ball cactus drawing. I read about this cactus online and it said the following: “The ruby ball cactus is a bright red, ball-shaped cactus that grows on a green base. A mutation of a normal cactus, it totally lacks the green pigmentation that allows other plants to absorb solar energy. The only way it can survive is to be grafted on a green cactus that absorbs energy for it. It is generally short-lived.”

That’s about the most romantic thing! Both parts need the other to survive, If separated, both would die.

Ink, colored pencil & watercolor on bristol paper.
