This little ACEO is 2.5 by 3.5 and is for sale for 10.00.
I painted this in the wet into wet style. First you wet the entire piece of paper with H20 and while damp you paint the background leaving room for the three yellow flowers. Then you pick up thick yellow paint and very little water and start to paint he petals of the flowers. As the blue starts to pull forward into the yellow,you pull it back out. You add the center color by charging the yellow with brown orange and a bit of red. The paper is starting to dry and so things are staying put a bit more and you go back over any areas you feel need more definition but remember you don’t want all hard edges so you pick and choose what to leave as is. Where the blue took over some of the yellow it will be green and that OK.

Try it you’ll enjoy the feel of the painting moving about on its own and watching th colors mingle.
