ACEO - Morning Sky 1

With it raining throughout the night there is very little snow left on the ground. It will continue to rain for the rest of the day and it is to change to snow later this evening.

With the 25mph (40km) winds that started in the afternoon the temperature is dropping rapidly from the 48F (8.9C) of the morning and should reach 23F (-6C) and they are calling for flash freezing on the roads and the snow to start in the evening.

I pulled out this painting that I started a couple of years ago (see posts on 21 June 2014 and 22 August 2015) and lightly sketched in a tree and added a little bit of shoreline.

I mixed a dark of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna and painted in the tree at the left side and darkened the mix slightly and put in the shoreline.

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 each and sold unframed.
