How To Illustrate & Watercolor a Potted Cactus

I've been watercoloring these little potted cactus pieces for some time now, and I've decided to film the process for a tutorial. If you love cactus and watercolors, then this is the perfect how to video for creating something nice for your personal art collection or simply learning how to watercolor. I hope you have a chance to sit down, grab your watercolors and enjoy painting. Watercolor painting is very relaxing!

Pick Up Something Original For Your Art Collection

These days, you don't have to be a millionaire or an art aficionado to be an art collector - You just need to love something enough that you want the original piece. Original art by Philip Boelter can be purchased in my shop, and can only be sold once – So if you see something you love, be sure to purchase it before someone else does. All original art pieces are one of a kind and is what is being created in my Instagram videos and pictures.

What's the difference between Original Art and Prints?

Prints are reproductions of the original art. Although the print isn't the original art piece, my prints are high quality gicleé reproductions of the original art and look amazing. All are signed by Philip Boelter – and usually come with a lil surprise. The price differs greatly between original art and prints because the original art is one of a kind and is the source for the reproduced print. 

Prints by Philip Boelter

All reproduction prints come signed by Philip Boelter, are available in various sizes, and usually come with a special surprise. All sized prints are ready for matte and/or to be framed easily. Every print is printed by Philip Boelter, printed from a professional Epson p800, and with high quality Cold Pressed paper.
