Day 80 - ACEO by secrets-of-the-pen Day 80 - ACEO by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 80 of my 366 daily art project! A lot more are on the way! Please read all about my project and charity below and in my journal.

This is my second ACEO drawn with my non-dominant hand. And because of that, it kinda took forever! haha But definitely worth it to try and rest my other hand from all this daily drawing! I'm slowly starting to feel more confident using my left hand for more artwork. :D

Special thanks to ~perplestone for the beautiful photograph: [link]

>>Created with charcoal and highlighted with chalk and white acrylic paint on 2.5x3.5 ACEO bristol vellum card. About 4.5 hours.

:bulletred: See all my ACEO's in my gallery here: [link]





-----------------

♥ For every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.

My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.

With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.

Together, through art, we can help make a difference.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
If you love this piece and the safehouse project, you can see the card to purchase at Etsy for $8 + shipping: [link]

The pictures you're doing with you non-dominant hand are turning out wonderful hon. This is amazing. You are a very skilled artist.

I'm so glad you like them! I wasn't sure how I felt about them at first - but I think it's going to be a great way to help rest my other hand and "spread out" the work I'm doing. ^.^

For you it's almost like a new creative technique. You do well enough for it not to matter which hand you use. You're just showing off and testing you're amazing skill! :D

It is definitely a new technique! I'm actually learning a lot that I can use for my right hand for better posture while I'm drawing!
