ACEOs In Progress

The image above shows 2 ACEOs with two slightly different variations on the VW theme. Not too clear, but they give you an idea (however faint) of how I tend to begin a painting. First I sketch and sketch in my nice simple spiral sketch book. Finally, once I've come to a version of the subject that I feel good about, I place a sheet of printer paper over the sketch and create a rubbing. I then place the rubbing over the intended surface, in this case a 2.5x3.5" piece of 140# watercolor paper, and trace the image thus transfering the sketch to it's final home.

Now to paint! - Joyce Brandon
