Here's a creatvie tip - and ACEO fun all at once!
ACEOs are lots of fun! These little 2.5 x 3.5 inch pieces of art can be any media, any subject, and they are very collectible. They can also be very useful.
Check this out ~ I have a painting in progress. It features a raven sitting on a fence. I wanted to find out if my color combination was going to make a fun raven, so I decided to do a little test ACEO. The colors I am using are highly staining, so making changes in my wee birdie would be very hard!
The bird is just the right size for an ACEO, so I decided to do a little painting and see how it worked.
I paint using the image on my computer monitor rather than a printed photograph. I like the way that I can make the image larger if I need to see more detail.
And, by the way - the fence is not painted green *laughs* that's liquid friskit that I used to keep the paper white while I painted the rest of the details around the fence.
