Did anyone do art throughout high school? Like as an elective class? My school portfolio has been stashed for 15 years at my parents house and is a ‘when are you going to take…’ topic of conversation, often. I collected it 2 weeks ago and have been reminiscing with my amateur art thinking about what I might frame.
Believe me when i say, this is amateur and certainly not a post in hope of an art critic to offer me thousands of dollars for one - so do not have high expectations, but with the significance of grade 12 figure drawing attached to it, I like the idea of hanging it somewhere. Probably the office. Office’s are personal.
These are a couple of the one's i like. This was figure drawing so we drew from the interior to exterior, hence the skeletons (which I just don't mind … freaky as they are)
This is my favourite which I will definitely frame. I like how imperfect it is, it’s bold strokes make it less confronting, i've looked at purchasing a nude over the years but never find one i like, and if i do it's thousands of $$'s. This one's free.
First thing 'A' said about this one was 'is that red stuff blood' .. hmmn, it looks a little like a murder scene out of CSI. So i'm going to play around with it and cover the red back to black. It's a little too sensual for me but i'll see what it looks like when it's fixed.
This above was E.A.P circa Grade 10. Shading and cubism i think we were doing. It's not perfect at all, but i do like the childlike lack of proportion. It already has shadows so in a hallway under a light would be ok.
That's all that i took photos of and i've probably overdone it anyway. My goodness time gets away. Feels like yesterday i was standing there charcoal in hand and the clock ticking.
Does anyone else have school art that brings back memories? I have a few surrealist one's too which are wack with a capital W. I remember sitting there looking for things to add that were around me and being amused when my art teacher nodded in understanding of what? I do-not-know.
Have a fab weekend.
