CHIAROSCURO PORTRAIT

Chiaroscuro


This is one of my first bigger pieces I have done for my A2 Art project, following the idea of transition. One of the aspects I wanted to look at within this was the dramatic contrasts between light and dark in a portrait.

I used charcoal and chalk on brown paper to produce this using abstract, scribbley mark-making rather than creating realistic forms of the face. I just don't do realistic.

WILD SCENERY

This is my final A-S level piece that I did back in May. I took the photo in the Art room so the lighting is not at its best. I used such a wide spectrum of colour because I wanted to use show perspective through extreme contrasts in colour. Additionally, to get the right mark-making I copied from a sketch rather than the photo. :)
