ACEO- Bulldog Sepia and Tints

"The Beautiful Bulldog"
2.5"h x 3.5"w Original Sepia Watercolour

I thought I would try and make a little ACEO to compliment my fuller paintings. This one is from my Bulldog painting, 'MY Ball,' posted on October 7th.
It is a closely cropped facial study, but instead of doing it in full colour, I painted it as a sepia print with some tints of rose for the tongue and the muzzle. I was quite pleased with it and so you'll be seeing this technique on a regular basis :-)

This is amazing, and even more so considering the size.

Thanks Claire; Working smaller is a good fit for me; the only problem is being hard on the eyes at times!(Even though I am using a magnifier)
