Mother's Day Daisy Painting ACEO

ACEO daisy painting
2.5" x 3.5" (6.4cm x 8.9cm)

A new flower painting in time for Mother's Day.

This is an acrylic painting on watercolor paper, a combination I have really been enjoying. It's an effective combination, I think, since you can paint directly on the nicely textured surface without gessoing. When painting with oils on paper, you always have to gesso or seal the surface with acrylic matte medium. If you don't, the oil will absorb into the paper and rot it.
