AS Exam Final Piece

This is my final piece and I loved doing it! The tree itself took 8 hours to do and the rest took a further 8 hours. The theme for this was "Sanctuary". I took this idea, thinking of the sanctuary you get when you read a book. This then led to you escaping into the book and then the book escaping. My influences were Su Blackwell, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Callesen. Me and my Dad actually constructed the box as well!

Better proportion!

Oil Painting, and I loved doing this!

Character Design

These are character designs I did for my AS Exam final piece. I really enjoyed doing these character designs especially the girl character. The monster was a bit more frustrating to develop.

Proportions are a bit out but I love the colours

This is an oil painting I did, copied from "Stick 'n Balloon"'s illustration.

In Wonderland

As the starting point for my exam art work for AS, i looked at Alice in Wonderland. I loved doing these pen and ink drawings especially this one below with the bright colours done with waterclours. It was so fun to do!

More Coursework

Andy Kinnear

This is my brother. I used him to draw from for my art coursework in school. I looked at portraiture with "normal" and strange squashed faces.

Let's get this started!

Hi my name's Nicola Kinnear, 17 years old and I'm in my last year of sixth form. I hope to go on to Art College for a Foundation year then maybe go on to do an Illustration degree. I'll be putting some of my school and private artwork. Hope you like it
