Your learning will be based on: -

My technique of using ink, wax and watercolour.

Time for fun with lots of small exercises in the wax ink and water colour.

Have time to play with no pressure, explore the thoughts behind the composition and colours to use to depict the scenes. Trial your techniques and ask questions.

Looking at your subject and start drawing.
