Latest ACEO - Bubbles & Blessings

We have a long weekend for the Queen's Birthday, here in Australia, and sadly, all the boys sport has been cancelled due to rain :) - so that just means more time for art - don't know how I'll cope!!! This is my latest ACEO - the main inspiration here was my urge to try to draw bubbles. I have attempted it a couple of times this week and all works have ended up in the bin. I worked out in the end, that it is much easier to draw bubbles on a darker background than to try to create bubbles on a white background - I guess it should have been obvious. This was my final attempt and the best of a bad lot, so I then proceeded with the rest of the painting. You can purchase this ACEO in my ebay store.

This is brilliant!! How long do theses small drawings take you? I am really impressed...they are so detailed.

Karen, I just love this! The bubbles look great, and what a fun, whimsical idea to have the mouse blowing them.

Thankyou so much Sandra and Mona - I really appreciate your wonderful comments. Sandra, they usually take me around 6-8 hours, sometimes longer. :)

What a sweet drawing! You've inspired me to try drawing on drafting film. I really enjoy your work!

That's wonderful Deb!! I think drafting film is a much under rated medium and I'd love to hear how you find it and see what you produce - have fun!!!
