Share my adventures and mis-adventures as I create original art in various media. I work in both 2D (oil, acrylic, pastel, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, and mixed media) as well as 3D (polymer clay, paper clay, ceramics, and felting). My favorite subject is animals. You will find comments on my experiences with several art products and methods.

Even More Tiny Ones
Here are the two other ACEOs that I did at the Art Camp this past weekend. Once again, they're colored pencil.
The bear went smoothly, and it was a nice change of pace to put a bit of landscape in it. But, as always with colored pencil, it was a pain preserving the lights.
Then on to the wolf. This one was coming along quite nicely when I hit a situation I've never hit before. I actually seem to have overloaded the paper with colored pencil because new layers started dislodging the ones underneath. So that was a rude and sudden ending. Unfortunatly, these areas show on the shadow parts of the face and chest. I don't know whether a different type of paper would have behaved differently. I'll have to ask a few of my colored pencil friends.
But, for now, I'm more than ready to move on to acrylics.
I'm very glad that I chose to work so quickly on these and not draw them ahead of time. The experience has made me more confident.
