"Hoot" Copyright Jennifer Rose Phillip
2.5 by 3.5 Inches
Coloured Pencil on Canson Mi-Tientes

I still have no idea how people can do an ACEO in an hour. This is 3 hours of work and I could work more on it, time will tell. They are fun and easy to do, but I tend to still use most of the day colouring one so that it is to my liking. I really like how the eyes turned out on this one. I decided to let the paper colour show through a lot because it was very close to the owls colouring.

I'm running out of space for artwork (my portfolio is overflowing and the boxes under the bed are full). I'm going to have to start selling it soon to free up some space. I guess its a good thing, just shows that I am drawing more than I was a few years ago. So keep reading here and on my site for news about when things go up for sale. And if you see anything that you like, ask for more information about it. :)

And its stopped raining!! About time we had a nice summer day. Ok, so I'm as pale as a vampire, and burn the colour of a ripe tomato but its so nice not to have to look at the grey sky and get soaked walking outside. Could be worse though, no flooding here so thats huge plus.

I am loving the eyes.
I am drawing a blank on ACEO. What is?
I really like all the color imagery in the last paragraph...pale as a vampire...ripe tomato..grey sky.

ACEOs (art card, editions and originals) are just little art cards, 2.5 by 3.5 inches and someone put a name to them. :)

I love the eyes on this little guy Jennifer! If you keep doing ACEO's you'll get faster, I swear.
I feel for you on the burning to a crisp in the sun. I have only two colours as well, white or red...I'm so patriotic.

lol!! Thats very patriotic. :) Who needs a flag to wave or face paint on Canada Day? ;)
I'm hoping to get faster, it does get a little frustrating though when it takes me the whole day. :/
