Abby Hope Skinner. Drawing from observation in art. This section of Abby’s A Level Art portfolio shows excellent reference to first-hand sources. Here she completes observational line drawings of still life items (relating to her identity as a young artist – paint brushes, easels, artwork) arranged on a studio desk. The compositions communicate the essence of Abby’s identity, without the inclusion of a typical self-portrait – an innovative way of approaching a self-portrait.
