Art Exam by Amigoamiga Art Exam by Amigoamiga
No this was not taken on the pavement, it was taken on my art classroom floor XD
I promised some people that I'd upload a photo of my 10 hour art exam, and here it is. I uploaded it to my facebook via my phone, and then saved that photo and uploaded it here!
(WARNING: LONG NOTE! INTERESTING IF YOU ACTUALLY CARE)

Spring: I did a watercolour background in spring colours, and then I used black ink for the tree. I drew over the tree in white colouring pencil to make it look like bark (Hard to tell from this crap picture) I stuck buttons on to make some blossoms, and edged with black felt pen, and rimmed with the words SPRING over and over again (Hard to tell) Blue biro for details on sky.

Summer: Watercolour background, oil pastel for detail, white colouring pencil on black inked tree. Blue biro for details on sky.

Autumn: I soaked paper in yellow ink, let it dry and cut it into leaf shapes, I then aged the leaves with coffee and stuck them onto a watercolour background. I used oil pastel to add some extra details. Black ink for the tree, white colour pencil for details on tree. Black biro for details on leaves.

Winter (My personal favourite): I did a watercolour background and sprinkled some rock salt on, so it made a snowy background (Common artists trick XD) I scraped the salt off and used black ink for the tree, white colour pencil for the bark. I paint splattered some white paint on, then used a silver ink pen to make snow in the sky (And add the moon)

this may be a silly question but i honnestly dont know, what is biro? lol
As for your art the concept is amazing and you did a really good job exicuteing it, i wish i could see it in person so i could see all the textures. I love the vivid colors and the way the four peices fit together. I couldnt imagine doing all that in 10 hours or less (i just dont have the focus lol) Nice detail on the tree and im glad you used mixed media it makes it more interesting than if it was all just say water color which would be pretty but not nearly as kick butt lol

XD No problem. Biro's just like a ball point pen (I tend to use either black, blue or red for drawing)

It's much better in person, my camera on my phone kinda killed it XD
I was pleased with the results, seeing as I hate mixed media - but after constant hassling from my teacher I decided to venture away from my normal water colours and colour pencils.

Surprisingly, the 10 hours go very quick!
Thank you for the lovely comment :heart: It makes my day :)

Your welcome
I also like the way that the panels are all different sizes.

Thank you :)
The different sizes correspond to how much I like the season. The bigger the panel, the more I like the season. The smaller the panel, the less I like the season.
