ACEO - Watering Can 1

Today was the opening of the Peterborough Garden Show held at The Evinrude Centre, 911 Monaghan Road, Peterborough Ontario, it runs from today through to 13 April 2014.

As usual for this show, I sat the last shift of the first day and one of the other KAGS members that had the earlier shift bought a lovely floral planter as a gift for her mother-in-law.

Since I demonstrated while I was there I decided to paint the lovely little watering can with the spring flowers in it. I used one of the cards that I had already painted in a background (see posting 16 October 2012 of Yellow Sky C).

I didn't have time to finish it while I was there as I had to stop often to talk with people about the display; so when I got home I completed the painting.

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 Windsor & Newton paint on 300lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $20.00 and sold unframed.
