ACEO Watercolors


I bought these little ACEO watercolor papers a while back and finally tried them out.  How could I resist them in the art supply store?  So cute and little- they even make tiny envelopes for them!  I like that they make great practice projects, since you don't need to set aside hours to paint these little watercolors.  I can focus on one item- like a shell or cork and there is no pressure, just fun painting practice.  This time, as you can see, I only used a few of the colors on my palette and kept it simple.  I see many more of these in my future!

  1. I couldn't resist these either, Sheryl! My sunflower series was done on those little papers. They make for dainty little paintings.
