My Art History

My Art History: High School

I’m sharing some artwork from my school and college years. See all the posts here.

lossie harbour

I never expected to find any High School artwork so this was a fun surprise. The above painting is of the harbour in Lossiemouth and seems to be an exercise in combining separate drawings into a composition. I don’t know if only using one colour for each area was intentional or just a lack of imagination. Probably the latter.

High School Artwork - Logo Design

This is from third year so I would have been 14/15. Designing a logo in the days before we were allowed to use computers! Look at that atrocious hand lettering at the top!

I remember we had to pick the business from a hat and I got a tyre company, much to my dismay. I ended up doing rubbings of tyres in the teachers’ car park and using the patterns to make a logo. Not a bad idea really, though clearly I only had the one idea.

High School Artwork - Surrealism

I remember this one too, from fourth year. We were studying Surrealism and went to the beach to collect driftwood to use as inspiration for a surrealist piece of art. It’s certainly a bit weird.

That’s all from my school years because I left school as soon I turned 16 to go to the local college instead.
