    Lovely work Cheryl! I so enjoyed seeing the exploration of your ideas through the different media…totally inspiring! I’m guessing this work is from Drawing 2?

    This work is so beautiful. Both inspirational and aspirational. Thanks for sharing.

    As I am also on Drawing 2 I’d be interested to know what projects these particular pieces relate to- or were they part of Sue’s personal project?

      Thanks for the kind comments Sue. Aside from my sketch book work where I was testing out combinations of media, most of these pieces were from Part 5 & my Parallel Project. You can view my blog at
      Best of luck with your course.
