Just when you thought the A-level course would go on for ever, the deadline for Final Piece 1 has finally caught up with us. Here is a snapshot of some of their studies ....
Ask Neva about her ideas and the concept behind this technically sound drawing. She loves to talk - and talk - and talk. Nice work Neva.
Eva was the first to finish Final Piece 1 and she has already started Final Piece 2 (in the background). Go for it Eva, you are great at using chcoal on such a large scale. Eye see what you mean.
Jessica exists in an upside down world - she'll explain.
Nearly finished Claire.You have a sound reputation for producing very peronal interpretations. This A1 study is no exception. Good luck in your interview.
Unlike her brother, this young lady has worked her socks off to meet the demanding deadlines required at A-level. Your work really does have the WOW factor Chloe.
Elli is the artist and her friend Emma is the model. Another expressive example of charcoal and chalk pastels that makes good use of light and dark for dramatic effect - chiaroscuro.
Bessie, who has a passion for prawn crackers, has nearly finished this stunning portrait of Chloe. If you think this is good you should see her Final Piece 2 composition. Watch this space. It's gonna be great. Thanks for the cake Mrs A.
They say the best things come in small packages. You are a star Emma. A fabulous large scale painting that took hours and hours to do. We all admire your work.
Aaron is rarely out of the spotlight and here he poses for us with his pencil and mixed media potrait. Nice one.
It's interesting to track patterns and trends because this year we seem to have a return to figurative studies, painting on canvas seems to be coming back into fashion and there is quite a lot of small scale drawing going on. Tessa, your influence is every where.
