Behind the Camellia Bush:
This original aceo painting started with a sketch that I did in my Lama Li sketch book.  The paper in this sketch book is call “Lama Li” paper. It is made by hand in the mountains of Nepal from the Lokta bush and has a textured surface that is very durable.  I love to sketch in pen on this paper.  I cut out my sketch and mounted it to illustration board, so it would be more stable and except paint better. I finished this piece in watercolor, ink and acrylic paint with a few final coats of acrylic varnish.
