Completed Project

After weeks of pouring out every last bit of my creativity into my final art project, the feelings stress and anxiety have finally been released today. The last day. Of. Art. And I feel relieved but also proud of my hard work and effort I put into this last exam!

Tree of Nicole's Life
Above is the second final piece I did in the 10 hours (four days, 2 and a half hours each). When I first came in the exam, I literally had no plan. My mind was a bit disorganised because the day before we started I also had my drama exam in which rehearsals were the whole day, so I missed the art lesson, and we stayed in school until 9pm to perform (and I was nervous like hell) so I was too tired to prepare afterwards.

Despite my recklessness and disorganisation (I came with nothing. Legit) I managed to come up with an idea of a tree composition - I paint a tree and within the leaves and branches I blend in my other studies so it looks like they're part of the tree (as seen above).

I honestly had no idea why I painted that portrait (I had no idea what I was doing) but I feel like it adds a bit of enigma to the painting which I really like.

Above are some of my Dawn Clements inspired landscape composition paintings. I was thinking of turning them into a graphics piece by adding some text to make it Martin Wilner style, but I unfortunately ran out of time :c

I've also done some landscape photography which I used as my source material:

I didn't manage to take photos of all my work from the project, these are the only ones I managed to take but I hope you enjoy them!

      Aha, and that's not me it's my friend! Don't worry, so many people made the same mistake but I don't blame them because we do look like sisters :D
