Jan 7 and 8 ACEOs

I worked ahead because the next few days will be busy.

Jan 7 ACEO: I always loved the Jugendstil/ Art Nouveau stained glass windows in Frankfurt. Here is my own attempt at a little bit of that style. I made the designs up myself, based on the "whiplash" curves and style of the time, I think I'll have to practice a little more.

Jan 8 ACEO: Another Jugendstil/ Art Nouveau tulip window. I like the way this one turned out better. The 'whiplash' lines are looking much whiplashier... and yes, I am making up words. :o)

On a side note, while these don't look as complicated as some of the other paintings, they required a VERY steady hand to make all those thin, parallel lines of the lead...
