ACEO - Papillon

SOLD "Papillon"
Original ACEO 3.5"x2.5" Watercoloured/Coloured Pencil on WC paper

I have been working on some larger paintings for 2 upcoming juried shows, but I'm not ready to share just yet....:-)
For a break, I did this ACEO of a real sweetie - a Papillon dog. This is a toy breed which was named after the French word for "Butterfly." Squint at this lovely face and you will see the butterfly wings that the ears, ear fringes and face make, with the white blaze as the body.
The painting itself is done as a drawing using a red/sepia and navy blue pencil crayon then the piece was glazed over with watercolours.

Such a sweet little face Kim! I loved your eggs too, they are amazing, really beautiful, and I wish my hens would lay some like that!
