This ACEO is an original, NOT a reproduction. It is done on a heavy, board with watercolor and brush marker. This ACEO is a one of a kind artwork by me and will never be reproduced.
I am doing 100 themed ACEOs as a creative exercise. This is theme 60- "Rejection." I love the combination of red and black, I really do! Maybe a little too much... This watercolor background seemed very somber, so I thought it would be perfect for this theme. A woman watches, crying, as the man she's just confessed her love for walks away. Done entirely with brush markers without any pre-planning for the artwork, as you can probably tell from the sketchiness of the marker.
The background was painted first and then the artwork was put over it with brush markers.
Card has been signed and dated on the back by me. Please note that the watermark in the second image is NOT on the actual card.
WHAT IS AN ACEO?
ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". These cards have one main rule - they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches - the size of a trading card.
Cards are also sold either as originals or editions. Make sure you know which you are buying! If it is a print it should say so, and it should be numbered and signed, usually on the back.
Art Cards can be a riot! Artists from all over the world are creating, and now selling these little gems in different mediums and of different subjects. Watercolor, Oil, Acrylic, Colored Pencil, Pastels, Pyrography, Pen and Ink, Sketching, Collage - the sky is the limit. Abstract, Surrealism, Outsider Art, Impressionism, Expressionism -every style you can think of - and then some!.
Items will be shipped in a full-size envelope, sandwiched between cardboard. ACEOs come in a protective plastic sleeve with a clear front and colored back to keep them safe.
