How to draw a cactus in a flower pot (+ coloring)

Long ago the cactus was a rare plant that can be seen in the deserts of Africa or America. Now we think that the cactus is just a usual house plant. Some of the cacti serve as a food in the south. Some types of them contain a useful liquid for the body. The cactus absorbs maximum of moisture and then it quietly grows in the desert, without requiring a lot of water.

We offer you to draw this plant. But not deserted plant, but the house one – in the pot.

 

You need:
1

Basis

Draw a horizontally elongated oval.
