Garden Path ACEO

Some photos wouldn't necessarily work for a larger painting, but are just perfect for an aceo. ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. They are always 2.5 x 3.5 inches. The size of trading cards.
They are affordable miniature works of art, and I love creating them.

This one photo I have intrigues me, so I am going to use it for an aceo.

I drew out the composition on heavy card stock paper.

I started with the main two flowers, keeping true to the colors in the photo. From start to finish, this one probably took me 2-3 hours.

This is the finished piece. I decided to call it Garden Path ACEO
