ACEO - Frozen 1

Today I took a painting in for the Abstracting from Life show at KAGS.

The weather seems to be holding at 20F (-6.7C) with snow falling. I thought it fitting that I work on this little painting that I started last year (see post on 11 February 2013) and get it finished.

I put in the background pine trees with a mixture of French ultramarine blue and raw sienna.

Next I painted in some of the grasses and growies around the small snow covered pine tree in the foreground.

If you would like more information about ACEO please go to my post on 11 March 2010.

The ACEO shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 300lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $20.00 and sold unframed.
