For my work sketching is very important and at the beginning of the workshop the students learned to use a sketchbook. In their works it shows that they actually had looked at what they were painting and that they simply didn’t use a photograph.

Above you can see some of the students works. The scepticism towards a sketchbook has disappeared and leads sometimes to funny pieces of conversations:
Petra. (happy):« I even started coloring my sketches.«
Klaus: »And your face too!«
