This is my latest project for art class that has to be sent away for the exam board to judge, i probably will never see the original ever again.
In Scotland in the 5th or 6th year of high school you get a shorter time to work on projects, in 3rd and 4th you get the entire year to work on either a design or a painting, unfortionatly for us we had to do both.
To my annoyance we can either choose to do a still life 9which i still find rather boring) or a self portrait.
This year i decided to experiment with backgrounds.
The background sunset was done by using blue, red, orange and yellow dyes. The rest was done in paint with details to the face, hair and top done in colour pencil.
The cross thing that I (yes that is me in all my hideous glory) am leaning on was adapted from an old Victorian mangle that my art teacher had in his room.
The outline of the tree came out a little messy by accident but i was told to leave it like that by my art teacher, for some reason the broken line gives it a nice effect.
The idea for this originaly came to me in a dream, much to my disapointment i can't remember it.

sweetsacrifice28woah~ O_O That's beautiful!
The colors are gorgeous and the angle is perfect, the same with shading.
^^ You did great with this, and your teacher would be insane not to give you an A+. *adds to favorites*

my art teacher said it was the best work i have ever done in his room, however it is not him that decides my final grade it is the exam board that it gets sent away to.
