It's by Pauline Burbridge and reminds me of the reedbeds where I do my research out in Mallorca
The others weren't as keen as I was on this piece by Maggie Baxter. I thought it had an African/Asian batik feel. They were reminded of murdered body outlines at crime scenes!
So we each made our own little textile painting on calico. My companions made very tasteful pieces using a tracing of a William Morris tile and a flower stencil respectively. My piece comes more from the primary school approach to artwork. However, like the work of the artists above, I did combine several techniques (tracing/painting, paint crayon colouring and stencil/stippling), so I'm quite proud of my first attempt at anything like this.
