At the beginning of Alex’s developmental folio for Unit 3 we see ‘holiday homework’ that Alex did in preparation for Unit 3. This page is one of several that feature a range of images that inspire Alex. The annotations reveal how these images may inform Alex’s own work. For example in discussing The Judgement of Paris by Hendrik von Balen, Alex notes ‘the colours and the way the figures are painted appeals to me in this image. Tones softly used, colour in its brightest form and the balance of figures are things I can learn from’.
