September 4, 2009 - Day 25

Da Vinci watercolor on 140lb Bockingford cold press watercolor paper

Today was a very productive day indeed! The sun was shining brightly and I love the look of bright sunlight on objects :) I took 150 reference photographs of peppers, oranges, bananas and cucumbers so expect to see some fruit and vegetable paintings in the near future. I will probably paint a red pepper tomorrow to keep it within the red theme for a little while longer.

I decided to do a painting of a crayon just because it is back to school time and I have been buying school supplies for my son this week. I thought that it would be fun to paint and fun to look at. I enjoyed creating this painting so much that I think I might do a series of crayons to list on ebay. I wonder if something like this would sell?

Speaking of selling on ebay - I have a painting listed for the ACEO ebay group September theme week which is "Harvest Festival". Entry requirements for the theme week are that all artwork must be 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches; have a starting price of $4.99 and listing length of 7 days. To search for all the paintings put "ACEO TW" in the search box and it will bring up all the paintings entered in this month's theme week.

There are only 3 days 18 hours left on my listing and I don't have any bids yet. It would be nice if it sold but maybe if it doesn't I can still win in the "People's Choice" category. There is no money to be won but it would be nice to receive the recognition from other ACEO artists.
