Original ACEO: Shape of a Woman's Back
About Shape of a Woman's Back
Shape of a Woman's Back is the first ACEO (Art Cards, Editions, and Originals) that I've every created. It started as washes of red, pink, and orange acrylic paint on Canson Mi-Teinte paper. Then I mimicked the female form with ink lines.
My First ACEO
I've wanted to paint ACEOs for several months, but I must admit they challenge me, since typically, my paintings are very large. Even though I've recently begun doing small original works that are 4" x 6" (10cm x 15cm), the ACEO size of 2.5" x 3.5" (6.25cm x 8.75cm) is the smallest I've worked. After Shape of a Woman's Back, I painted two more immediately afterwards and had a lot of fun! I'm anticipating many more ACEOs in the future.
You can purchase this one of a kind original ACEO from my Etsy store.
