Picasso, ACEOs, Eagle and Rhino for PPF
In the Style of Picasso ACEO, Painting the Masters.
I love the expressions on these characters! Boredom and hostility?
Twofers, because there is a diamond pattern in his sweater (See April's Theme for 30/30) and my entry for the ACEO Spring2015 Ebay challenge. It's a stretch for me because we all have to list the starting price at $20.15. I have only ever sold my ACEOs for about $10 or $15 at the most, so I am stretching a bit.
I have just passed #900 in my ACEO numbering system, so that means I am well on my way to painting 1000 of these little gems. What fun!
More 30/30 FB challenge theme ACEOs this week. Symbols of April.
The baby with the book is left over from last week's theme.
Daisies and Sweet Peas are April's Flowers
And Diamonds are the Gem of the month
We allow a very loose interpretation of the themes.
More challenges - PaintMyPhoto.ning.com
Challenge #1 was to paint an ACEO Night Scene, and #2, an ACEO portrait from FREE reference photos on the site.The pictures on this site are awesome, and all are free for artists to use.
Another Challenge on a group Artist Reference Photos on Facebook was to paint the photos provided, and I chose the Eagle and the Rhino.
"Eagle Eye" above is an ACEO, watercolor, pen and ink on hot press and
The Rhino below is a little bit bigger, 4x4 inches, Watercolor, pen and ink on cold press. He just did not fit on the 2.5 x 3.5 inch ATC card.
Watercolor class has resumed this week, after a 3-week hiatus, so bigger paintings are in store for next time, I think.
