Day 10 of 29 Faces in 29 Days - Original ACEO


Day 10 of 29 Faces in 29 Days - Original ACEO




This original ACEO in an abstract loose style comes from a series I am doing for 29 faces in 29 days on Facebook.  "Incognito" shows a movie star or famous person or just someone who likes to hide behind sunglasses.  Done in very bright colors, with watercolor and fine liner work.

ACEO refers to the size - 2½” x 3½” - also called an ATC or artist’s trading card. Signed by artist. Complete contact info on back - comes in a protective sleeve.  The photo looks bigger, but it is truly the size of a baseball card.  Original, not a copy, painted with acrylics on heavy paper.

  9. Thanks, y'all. I really do not do careful line work, I try to be very loose and sparse with it, not too much. The colors are done in washes first, then I find the faces.
