ACEO Original and requested LE Print!



ACEO Cat-Ass-Trophy is back as a Limited Edition Print! With a Buy-It-Now listing if you just can't wait and don't want to be sniped. It's been one of my most popular ACEOs ever and now your cat has a chance to win the No. 1 Disaster Award.

Tonight I also listed another of last Wednesday's pencil-free watercolor paintings -- the most difficult one. This was pure insanity beginning to end that actually worked. I did more painting and tilting and playing with it and letting it dry and hurriedly tilting again on this than I even like to think about, but it came out right -- with no sketch. None. Not even watercolor pencils. All the details went in with a 20/0 liner brush.



ACEO Pigeon Point Lighthouse was painted from a photo reference by greybear, a photographer friend on DeviantART. I changed the reference significantly, especially the weather, but also removing some fences and other annoying details that didn't seem as esthetic as the bushes, road and main buildings. It is very accurate minus the fences. And I did no sketching under it. I look at it today and that weird little fact is freaking me out, how I managed to get its shapes and proportions that accurate without sketching it.
