Posted by: Joy Alyssa Day in ACEO
am trying new techniques in my watercolor paintings. The result I'm hoping for is to figure out which would be best for an upcoming children's book that I'm writing. It has a lot of flowers and bunnies and such in it, but the simplistic, very muted colors that I see in most bunny children's books just doesn't do it for me. I want vivid, rich, beautiful, so I'm trying various things with these ACEOs to see what I like best for my new book.
This is a wonderful contrasty piece showing a little skier at dusk. What do you think of it?? Is it a good piece? needs more detail? more color? less color?

It's an ACEO, so it's 2.5" x 3.5", so I didn't have a whole lot of room to work with. Please post a comment and tell me what you think, good or bad. I'm learning, so critiques will help me grow.
If you love it, by all means please tell me that too, and maybe consider supporting my career with a purchase of this or another beautiful little piece.

Good contrast. Unfortunately it's hard to see the details on a scan from an AOCE (which is very interesting -I'd never heard of those before).
Keep up the good work!
