ACEO style in Large Format - Completed

This piece was something I really took my time on. I layered thin wash after thin wash adding a huge amount of depth to the orange cast pavement. As you can see, the bottles have deepened shadows and glossy highlights. It is so much more striking in person.

I hope my client is pleased.

This piece is indeed striking - you have achieved a "story" which strikes an emotional chord in your viewers. The pose of the male is a large part of that emotional connection. The eye is drawn again and again to different parts of the painting, to enjoy the depth, and the subtle tones throughout the canvas. This is a wonderful painting, Michelle!
