Claudia Carless (Art A Level)
By studying Fine Art at A-Level, I have gained a further understanding of creative design and an awareness of the use of light, colour, shade, and texture. In addition to this, studying Graphic Design alongside Fine Art taught me how to use a range of computer programmes such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Studying Fine Art enabled me to experiment using a variety of different mediums and styles within my work, including pointillism, collaging, linocuts, and printing. For my final project, I gained inspiration from the works of Pablo Jurado Ruiz and Debbie Smyth and created two triptychs â€“ one being drawings of my younger sister in pointillism, and the second, three street scenes from Bordeaux, using the same pin and thread technique as Debbie Smyth but on a much smaller scale.
