Still painting ACEO's -  Never heard of them?  Well it stands for

Art Cards Editions and Originals

Art Trading Cards basically measuring 2½" x 3½"












Inspired by photographs in Paint My Photo to

    1. Actually, I didn't think I could paint so small, but it's been surprisingly fun. They would make good practice pieces for larger work too.

  2. These are all so fun! I like the landscapes and the little doggie. I like doing the ACEO''s too. I use to do a lot of exchanges with mine. Have a great weekend.

    1. I've heard of exchanges with them. I'll probably make ones for selling eventually though, perhaps on eBay.

  3. Your ATCs are giving me Spring fever as there's still a lot of snow on the ground.

    1. Good, I'm glad CJ, just can't imagine having snow for so long as you have.

  4. I recognise the first one! The tide's out I wasn't sure what an ACEO was, here I have seen them called ACTs.

    1. Well, I guess they are all ATC's (Art Trading Cards) which are traded and swapped, but a few years ago artists started to sell them and so are known as ACEO's (Art Cards Editions and Originals).

    1. Yes, completely addictive. A good way to work out a larger painting first too ;)

  6. I've never tried ACEO's - might be fun to try. Love that one of William.

    1. I didn't try them until recently Sandy, and they've proved to be fun. Do give them a go.

    2. I will trim a few index cards to that size to give it a try - it just seems so little - not sure I can see what I"m doing, lol

    3. Sandy, you might find index cards warp when you add watercolour to them, although they will be perfect for practicing with. I use 140lb watercolour paper, so that not only holds the water but also is a good quality card.
