Artist's description:

Line And Wash Watercolour Painting

2.5 x 3.5 inches

Indian Ink and Artists Watercolour Paint on Watercolour paper mounted on 3mm board

This is a line drawing of a crab I found whilst on holiday. I used the colours of the crab and the ocean in an abstract way to give more emphasis to the crab and the colours surrounding it.

The easel and thimble are not included in the sale and are shown to give scale to the picture. I hope this helps.

ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals and are more commonly referred to as Artist Trading Cards. These small works of art have one main rule - they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches - the size of a trading card. They can be made of any substrate or any medium. ACEO's, originally traded, are now also sold to buyers and collectors world wide.

I find ACEO's fun to paint and I often try out different mediums. More often than not my ACEO's are painted using 3mm board as a support. I like this because it makes them feel more chunky and easy to handle. I mount watercolour paper, canvas or just paint straight on to the board.
