This week’s ‘Artwork of the Week’ comes from Megan G from Castlemilk. Megan had attended the Young Brits at Art workshop on Sunday 21st Feb at Kelvingrove Museum. Her artwork had to reflect or relate to ‘a world without prejudice’ as a theme to be entered into the Young Brits at Art competition. Megan decided to focus it on name calling and teasing. She created the image above within a three hour session, really only working on it for around an hour to an hour and a half.
Megan uses pencil scribbling to add tone and texture, black Sharpie pen to highlight detail and a toothbrush to spray a little light shading of blue for a hint of colour. She wanted her image to look monotone so that her fiery red hair would attract the eye. The hair was painted with daubs of acrylic so that it stood out.
I really like the image and the writing is funny, yet makes a good point about the issue. Her piece is called ‘See Me!’ which I think is very apt. A really strong but delicate image that completely reflects Megan’s personality. Well done Megan!
