Art Every Day Month - Day 24

Seahorse doodimal ACEO - 2.5 x 3.5 inches ink and watercolour

I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed doing my doodimals and after doing the pet portrait commission last week it put me in the mood to do some more. 

I love seahorses - they seem so serene and gentle, such delicate beautiful little creatures and I'd had them on my list of 'things to paint one day' for a while now so I decided there was no time like the present as it seemed like a perfect subject to be turned into a doodimal. I was about to start one on A4 paper when I spotted the pack of ACEO paper just sitting there waiting to be used. Initially I wasn't sure if I could do a doodimal on such a small scale but it turns out I could!

This is my submission for AEDM Day 24.



  1. And you can't help liking the male seahorse because he kindly looks after the babies for his lady. Nice subtle colours, and I love the bubbles rising to the surface.

  2. Oh, this is so so cute .... Wonderful colourcombination too!

  3. that is amazing detail on such a small substrate. Your seahorse is truly magical!

  4. He is a sweet little bloke.

  5. I like the limited pallet it makes it easier to take in the fine line work.

  6. very sweet - it'll make a lovely card too x


Your comments always colour me happy! Thank you for popping by.
