My final piece in my 15 hour Art A Level exam Smiley

The lady who sat for me was over 8 months pregnant and gave birth the following week! I'm glad I managed to paint her when I could. Very lucky!



It's essentially created using drips, one on top of the other. It creates a very interesting texture! I just want to touch the canvas, haha. Unfortunately, my canvas ha buckled as you can see, so I'm going to have to put some panels in the back of it to straighten it out.

Thoughts?

I watch to touch it. It's beautiful and I can SEE the texture in the image of the painting. Explain more about your exam. A 15 hour exam? That sounds harsh

Beautiful!  The buckeling looks like draped fabric.

Yeah, it's pretty intense! Thankfully, we get to spread it out over 3 days, but it still makes up 5 hours a day. It wasn't that bad tbh, as I enjoy painting. I wasn't thinking that though when half way through I decided that I hated it! Don't know if you get that? I always reach a point in all of my paintings in which I'm ready to burn it! Once you paint past that, you start to really like it, hehe.

Actually, that is draped fabric that I painted. What I meant with the buckling is that the pressure of the canvas stretching has caused the frame to distort. Unfortunately at the moment, it wouldn't hang flat on a wall. I hope it gets sorted out by the time of the exhibition!!
