Paint Party Friday - Original ACEOs of BUILDINGS in my country

Hi everyone, thanks for coming to see these!
I missed the last (and the first) Paint Party Friday and I was really sad about it cause I was looking forward A LOT. Well, I am glad that I made it for this friday, although I am like THE LAST on the list. oh well... hopefully someone will still come visit :)


In the last months I've had an idea to paint scenes from my country (the Czech republic), but since landscapes and building were always a challenge for me, I didn't really know what format I should go for and what medium to use. And then I finally got it! ACEO! Watercolor and Acrylics... why not :) I enjoy painting little things so much and figured that it could ease it up for me with such challenging themes.
Well, I simply want to share the beauties of my home country, because I myself adore them. So here are first three. Hope you will like them!!


This is town's square of Kromeriz, you can see a castle's tower on the left, right behind it are the castle gardens where my hubby and I got married. Such a beautiful place!

ACEO original Watercolor. Available for sale. 


This is the town hall of town I come from - Kojetin. We also have a nice square on the top of a hill, or the center of the whole town. In the past there used to be a lot of trees everywhere and even a large fountain, but trees were taken down, and the fountain stopped working and was very broken, so it's not there anymore either.
Anyway, the buildings are simply wonderful! And they did amazing job rebuilding the Town hall - it burned dowseveral years ago when it was hit by a lightning stroke.

This is again in Kromeriz. Close to the square. It's a white building, a school of Justice. In the front of it there is a statue of T.G.Masaryk - a great president from the past!

Well.. let me know what you think :) I have tons more coming up, but as you can probably imagine, it will take a while as I have to really work on the details!!
