Golden Helmet ACEO acrylic


"Golden Helmet" ACEO 3.5 x 2.5 inches, acrylic on illustration board. I love profiles, and I love funny hats. Plus gold metallic paint. This is another one of my recent compositional studies. This one is a Cross or t shaped composition. Greg Albert had a series of various large shape compositional patterns and I went through and did each one. Previous posts have the U shape and another t shape --can you tell which is which? Available on eBay.

Me too on the profiles and the gold metalic paint. I'd say this compositional study is a success. It's very very interesting to look at with all it's wonderful textures in the larger shapes.

Thanks! I'm really happy with all I've learned about composition with Greg Albert's book The Simple Secret to Better Painting.
And I love what acrylics can do with certain types of textures..
