ACEO - Quiet 3-4

Today I am back at the Among Friends Art Show and Sale and working on a number of ACEO as demonstration pieces. It helps to pass the time and they are easy to leave when you have to speak with people about your work.

Helen Sheppard sold an original painting, and a number of smaller items from JoAnne Connell Northey, Lorraine Ryan and Diane Collins sold as well.

On  each of these pieces I dropped alizarin crimson, French ultramarine blue and raw sienna into the background of the painting and let it dry.

Then I painted into the area where I would place the rocks using a mixture of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

Using a palette knife I created the rock shapes and let them dry.

The trees were painted  using French ultramarine blue and raw sienna.

A darker mix of the same colours was used for the tree reflections.

The ACEO shown here are all original watercolour paintings using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. They are priced at $20.00 each and sold unframed.
