Negative drawings , white ink on black paper Catherine's

 Larissa 's drawing collage, woks in progress from Paula (tonal inks) Alyssa's colourful pencil drafts, Tim's 'haute couture' stylised slender ink models and the images of the tools of a typical class show just how much fun we are all having amid hard work. Freda 'Banksey ' is improving every week and we love her pastel work complete with 'creature'aspects.
