Mermaid's Touch by Katerina-Art Mermaid's Touch by Katerina-Art
My newest Mermaid Artwork,
a beautiful underwater mermaid reaching out :)

This is an Original OSWOA (4x6) art.
completed with pastels and pencil.

Limited handsigned prints from my website :)
[link]

OSWOA Explained:
Artists who enjoy creating small works of original art, 4" X 6" which are original, unique and highly collectible since they fit easily into photo album sleeves. OSWOA is a trademarked acronym which represents ORIGINAL SMALL WORKS OF ART created by artists from around the world!

Pose/model by the beautiful :iconalmudena-stock:
(just loved her stock)

This is my official mermaid art in 2009 (so far) :giggle:
I was working on something different and took a break
to finish this :)

oswaos are small 4x6 artworks
a bit bigger than those ACEO card
drawings, gives you more space to work in
and you can make some bigger prints with that size too :)

I've only heard of ACEO's so far, I got to know about it many years ago because there was this artist I admired a lot when I didn't even was thinking on drawing :lol: This is the artist: [link] I just remember thinking 'damn, I wish I had something to trade with her!' but I guess I've never realised how small ACEO's were until some time ago. I think it's quite impossible to draw on such a tiny space and that's why I admire so much people who do it! :)

OSWAOS are something completely new to me, never heard of it before. it seems to be the principle behind it is the same of ACEO's but with a (not so much) larger space to work.

Anyway, I guess I'll never try any of both, I prefer to look at your masterpieces! :blowkiss:

wonderful artist her aceo collection is wonderful :clap:
it's true drawing small can be very challenging and eye straining some people
enjoy it and some don't
i think what makes you feel comfortable you should stick with it,
no matter what size an artwork is it's beautiful :hug:

esTHer-duraes Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yes, they are indeed :)
I like the concept behind ACEO of trading art, seems really nice :aww:
I'd love to try ACEO one day but I guess it's still very early to do it. I started working with very big canvases, I used to work on A2 paper and sometimes bigger, then I went to A3 and just now I'm getting used to A4. I guess I'm used to do a lot of details so I wouldn't feel comfortable with drawing in such a tiny space :) but maybe I'll try it one of these days ;) :blowkiss:

i think you will do fantastic :)
if i may suggest something that helped me when i first
started doing aceos, try and use most of the paper as you
can for example go for a close up portrait/or animal etc.. than a full
figure, this way you will get more used to it you will still be working in smaller
but yet you wont feel as uncomfortable ;)
