Day 20 ACEO

I did the second flower ACEO in my series of three on gray Strathmore paper, and wrote an article on How to Draw an ACEO or ATC that I rated Easy, since I provided a clean design with simple outlines and suggested simpler ways of coloring than I've done. In my experience coloring in small areas heavily is one of the easiest things to do in colored pencil anyway, but let me know if the article's good in general as well as on how to do this ACEO design. If I left out anything important, please comment here and let me know, I'll go edit it in!

I'll add an LJ-cut as usual if I add any more artwork later today. Like maybe doing the third ACEO in this group.

I decided to finish it and not do another article on the exact same style with a different flower. I used a lot of mixed colors in this one, from the 120 color Faber-Castell Polychromos set so it wasn't a beginner palette either.
