Zoe and Emma
Continuing the series of abstract artworks, Zoe and Emma bring attitude to the collection. The painting only uses the four colours of turquoise, purple, black and white, to create two individual personalities of portraits. By using more of the purple in one portrait, and more of the turquoise in the other, the colours allow for the differentiation of the two faces. The attitude between them both, stare you down from across the room.

From the doodles of sketches, this piece came about through the experimentation of size and shape. The overlapping elements of the hexagon and circles break break the optical illusion of the individual shapes.
A piece created during Project 365, this piece looked at the conjunction of the layering of shapes. By using opposing colours in each of the elements of the shapes, the eye is constantly busy analysing the shapes available, the background elements involved, as well as the swirling shapes in the foreground.

As an artist, it is essential to keep up the studies of the forms that we choose to portray. As this series grows, Charlotte hopes to grow in her sketching knowledge and the belief that she has in her woks.
