I was on a kick using these bright acrylic paints and some paper napkins in this aceo. The smaller strips remind me of candy wrappers and the rose is a rose, well- it's a rose.
Once I scanned the aceo I could see the texture in the napkin much clearer, so I may add something to it to embellish the rose; something lightweight as the coldpress paper will need backing if too much is laid upon it. Maybe add a little aging to it overall?
It's a little cheery to look at with the dark and dreary winter out here in the midwest. Last year we were fortunate to not have the usual omnipresent snow and ice for months on end. We had some weeks with less snow and for that, I am very thankful. Hope we get an encore this winter, no guarantees, of course..
I started this aceo last winter, and put it aside, maybe I'll finish it
before Spring, lol.
Are you looking forward to the winter or would you like a long autumn?
