When in doubt, try a still-life drawing

I have finished a couple of small still-life drawings of a succulent we have growing in a pot. It’s got a lovely sculptural quality and a light grey leaf – and it thrives in warm Western Australia. I need to find the botanical name for it as “succulent” isn’t really specific enough. I used a pencil with a bit of a gouche wash to add a bit of colour.  I have mounted them with matt board with foam core at the back and slipped them into a cellophane bag for display, and hopefully sale, at a market.
