Rocky - Art on the Fly

Rocky 2.5x3.5 Mixed Media
For this ACEO I used watercolor, pen, and pencil. The paper was first given a watercolor wash. Once that was dry I challenged myself to make something out of the random pattern that was produced. Another way to improve your artistic skills.

Long Absence

Sorry for the long absence. I promise I will be making up for it.

I bought a house recently and have been moving the past few months. The bad news is it is a lot of work especially for a pack rat. The good news is I now have a room for a studio.
