Obsessed with Aqua and Red

Above image is by too fab Etsy seller yaelfran in her Tiny Art shop. I'm in love with all of the cute objects she has for sale! This particular piece falls right in line with my current obsession...

Yes, I am currently completely obsessed with a palette combining aqua and tomato red with accents of white and black. I am dying to do a layout using those colors for one of my design clients, but currently no projects quite fit the bill. So, in lieu of that, I'm painting my little heart away in that palette! These ACEOs and more are available in my shop. I start the process with a wash of lovely aqua paint, then just start drawing in ink and thicker watercolors, followed by white highlights. Oh, I also have to mention that I am IN LOVE with Arches 140 lb. cold pressed paper. I will never go back. It may be a little more expensive but it is so worth it.



A quick note
