ACEO Post 2

Today I actually spent quite a bit of time painting.  Started out doing a soft pastel landscape on a gesso coated piece of watercolor paper from a prior mess up.  Didn’t come out good at all.  Next I tried a small oil pastel on a tinted canvas piece that I had ready and did a beach boat scene, also not good!  Finally said give up and do a watercolor and be done with it!  Also not good.  Sooooo, spent a lot of time practicing with nothing to post.  Since I had four new little ACEO’s done just sitting there said if I’m gonna post something why not them!

So here they are.  Covered Bridge, from a Lancaster PA trip, Resort, from Marco Island visit last month, Iris, just a study and Black Eyed Susan’s from a recent photo! These seem to calm me when I get out of control and feel I’ve lost it all!  They take a bit of patience and control that I seem to lack these days when dealing with a large landscape scene.

What I did today may be reworked and completed at a later time who knows?  I hate wasting all that good paper you know so I will never throw anything away. There is always hope that I can salvage them into something worthy when the right mood strikes me.

Until next time, keep trying.

  1. The paper is never wasted. it was used to practice and hone your skills and calmed your mind when you needed it. That’s time and money well spent. I love your A.T.C.’s x
