My first ACEO - there, I've said it! A fun e-mail from Lynsey at the weekend prompted me to take up my pencil and do some drawing, which I haven't done for a while (apart from designing softies, of course!).
Today, I decided to take it one step further and have a go at creating an ACEO - I'm really not sure why, it just sort of happened. Anyhow, I really enjoyed the freedom of the pencil, and of course some Harris Tweed managed to make its way into the picture too! I decided to use the tweed to make 'accents' on the drawing, which to my mind worked quite well. I always think of Harris Tweed as part of the landscape, so perhaps it was a natural progression.
This one's available in my Etsy shop (the grown up one!). Well, it filled a space where my 'tweedie' draught excluder was! (The view is from my kitchen window by the way - the above pic is a detail from the ACEO).
P.S. ACEOs are miniature works of art for trading, collecting, framing, or just treasuring, and measure 3.5 inches x 2.5 inches.
