Artist Analysis: Nikau excels in written subjects as well as Art and Design and this International GCSE Art sketchbook page contains a superb analysis of the artwork of Jim Dine. Along with photocopies of Jim Dine’s work (printed directly onto the sketchbook page) Nikau completes outstanding imitations of his technique, using Indian ink, charcoal and acrylic paint.
I’ve had quite a few asks in my inbox from GCSE students asking for general advice, so o jotted down a few little things I learnt/that I think are important. Hope they’re ok for you guys! (Think I’ve tagged every possible GCSE subject haha)
Frida Kahlo artist research by artist Abby Hope Skinner. This section of Abby’s Coursework project shows first-hand responses to subject matter (self-portraits of herself in the style of Frida Kahlo, posing with a cat, dog and plants). The photographs of her work in progress are captivating (normally these are not required; in this case they provide stunning evidence that under-drawings have been sketched entirely by hand, with proportions gauged by eye).
