S3 were introduced to Richard Patterson’s ‘The Blue Minotaur’. They were asked to create a mind map involving doodles, colour and interesting points. They had to develop the maps from the usual discussion points; tone, colour and composition. Focusing on still life for their critical exam and summary writing, it is important that they approach numerous still life paintings and tackle them in this way. It will help ease the shock of seeing a new image for the part A question of the expressive section of the paper.
