Complete your object background using either coloured pencil or felt pens, making sure it is completely covered with no white paper showing through. (REMEMBER you can only use primary and secondary colours to do this.)

Go around each object using a black pen, so that it looks the same style as Patrick Caulfield.

Add your identity collage over the top of this background by creating a portrait using cut out magazines.

Add one word to your collage that describes you identity. such as bad, sophisticated, lovely, sporty etc using decorative letters cut out of the headings within the magazines you have used for your identity collage.

Remember you need to think about your composition this is your final piece for this unit and it will be used to level your work, so do your best if you want to reach/surpass your target.


Critical Studies: Patrick Caulfield

Born in London on the 29th of January 1936, Patrick Caulfield was an English painter and printmaker.

Caulfield began his studies in 1956 at Chelsea School of Art, London, continuing at the Royal College of Art (1960-63),

He became associated with Pop art mainly because of his participation in the New Generation exhibition at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, in 1964.

Caulfield's paintings are figurative, often showing a few simple objects in an interior. Typically, he used flat areas of simple colour surrounded by black outlines.

In 1987 Caulfield was nominated for the Turner Prize and in 1996 he was made a CBE.

He died in London in 2005 and is buried in Highgate Cemetery.
