Year of Colour Sampling – colour wheels, both acid- and naturally-dyed; value scale; complement blends
- Lock Pop of naturally dyed Coopworth – started with Saxon blue indigo derivative
- Value Scale (achromatic) – added extra samples to even out the scale to be seamless
- Value Scale (chromatic) – working through orange to black then through to white (not finished yet)
- Adding Black to create shades – complement blends, triadic blends
