Waiting on an egg on Paint Party Friday

ATC or ACEO? That is the question. One is meant only to be trade the other can be sold.  In the meanwhile I will stuff it in a drawer. In the background (as some wondered) are two more birds (peacocks) with there eggs and some palm trees of sorts.  Yup they are really small. The picture shown here is the actual size of the illustration- 2.5x3.5inches.
Painted with watercolour pencil and water, colour pencil, and white gel pen ,on watercolour paper, backed with card.
Hope you have a great Friday and pop by the Paint Party Friday  and see other artists fab paintings :)
Cheers

I love it! It's so hard to draw/paint on small scale, for me anyway. You've done a wonderful job. I like that egg, tee hee. Happy PPF!

Love your itty bitty bird sitting on her giant egg...ACEO or ATC whatever the case may be. It looks to me that they should be called one thing since ever artist can trade as desired or can sell whichever they want.

Gorgeous! I love your style of illustration and this is just so cute. I call them ACEO's although I've not sold any and didn't actually know that was the difference in the names! You learn something new every day!
