Alison, Val and Kathy worked with loads of enthusiasm and filled their sketchbooks with samples, descriptions of the methods they used as well as developing their own ideas into mounted pieces.

They all managed to produce every technique in the list I gave. Their sketchbooks need to be finished  at home, and their final pieces  framed.

The blue one is one of a set of four inspired by ideas about the sea and sky, while the green piece shows a very different style with a contrast between hard edged shapes and soft textures as well as a sense of depth.   It was good to see that all three had strong individual ideas of their own and produced very different pieces in spite of using the same techniques and materials.
