In my ACEO faces I like to capture something of the character behind the facial features. It may be ‘a plucky spirit’, ‘a touch of soul’ or a ‘magic smile’ summed up in an expression which we all recognize.
My ACEO portraits are depicting imaginary faces, based on fleeting glimpses of people in streets, cafés, shops and everyday life situations. This work is linked to my plaster heads:
Please note that my ACEO cards are sold unframed.
I used wax pastels for colouring and permanent pen for the silhouette, working on 2.5mm balsa wood. The cards have been textured and polished to a leather-like feel, as illustrated in photo No 5.
Measures: 8.9 x 6.4 cm / 3 ½ x 2 ½”
Every card is one of a kind, an original painting, signed with my full name on the reverse.
I will pack each card in an A6-card sleeve, A6 envelope and send it by 1st class Airmail worldwide.
