These sketchbook pages are the unequivocal result of effort, passion and enthusiasm. Although 'decoration' is usually unnecessary within a textile or fashion design sketchbook, in this case, the background patterning demonstrates a complete understanding of the aesthetic; a strong personal response to the colours, shapes, textures, lines and forms of the work studied.
Paper Cuttings, Monoprints and Collagraphy: Exciting A Level Portraiture
This A Level sketchbook page shows an artist study - formal analysis of the work of Francis Bacon alongside Lucy's own experimentation. Adobe Photoshop has been used to distort original photographs, before creating a monoprint of the image and overlaying other images printed onto acetate. Supporting artist works can be seen alongside, including those by Picasso, Käthe Kollwitz and Dustin Farnsworth.
