Seen as though I will be posting most of my artwork on here, I thought it would be appropriate to start from the beginning. My idea is to show art work through the ages, as it were, from my early painting right though to my latest works. I’m going to start from where I feel I started to gain my own style of painting and drawing. Keep in mind that the first few wont be high standard work, but we all know that everyone starts somewhere. I have always had a love for drawing and painting, but it was years 10 and 11 of high school that I started to evolve and give my work personality that reflected me.
This is still probably my best oil pastel drawing to date, I can’t think of another that has impressed me more. When I first did this, I was so surprised that I had created something so much better than I had ever done before. And even today, I’m completely gob smacked as to how I ever achieved it.
But yeah, anyway. You’re probably thinking “…”, but I really don’t care, I was proud of it then and I still am.
This is a painting I did for my final year exam. Although I was quite pleased with it at the time, I now see loads of faults with it, too much flat colour for example. I did still get an A for it at least. My favourite thing about this is the driveway, I just like the way the vertical line go off to a vanishing point.
