The very first step is an India ink drawing on the 3.5" by 2.5" board.
Step two is an India ink wash background.
Next I add a little colored pencil over the ink wash in this new miniature (2.5" by 3.5") painting.
Then I begin to add layers of colored pencil to the slender Crocus leaves....
Here in step five, I start on the Crocus blossoms using heavy layers of Prismacolor pencil.
I got a little further on my new miniature painting - ACEO "Spring Crocus and Mouse" today. This is a colored pencil and India ink piece, 2.5" by 3.5".
Nearly done with the flowers, leaves and background of my newest miniature painting- ACEO. The fur on little mouse will be the most fun!
Below I am starting to layer colored pencil for the little mouse's fur.
Nearly done! The next step is adding detail to little mouse's fur.
India ink, colored pencil and some white acrylic.
2.5" by 3.5"
