ACEO - Vertical 1

Today I wanted to complete this painting that I had started last year (see posts on 03 October and 05 December 2018 and 02 February 2019).

I started by putting in the some pencil lines to divide up the remaining large spaces.

Using Antwerp blue I filled in one of the upper left section and let the second part white. From there I filled in the bottom part of the lower left sections.

On the top right space I used aureolin on the smaller part.

Using a small amount of cadmium red I filled in the top part of the lower left section leaving the centre space white.

Adding a some aureolin to the cadmium red, I painted in the remaining space.

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 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $20.00 and sold unframed.
