My studio walls and sketchbooks have been camouflaged with references to the blue period, which defines a series of monochromatic paintings by Picasso. My GCSE Art class have been exploring this technique and applying it into a series of self portraits. They are to produce large scale versions for a mock exam. It’s only a matter of time before I have close the door on synchronicity and producing an visual example of a certain standard for the mock exam is essential..don’t even have to say any more. Marie-Therese Walter was a major influence in this painting.
