  2. Colours and Mixing: Discover the magic of warm and cold colours as we explore colour theory. We'll learn to identify and use these colours effectively to create visually captivating artworks.

  3. Ink and Wash: Experiment with the intriguing technique of ink and wash. I'll show you how to combine the delicate transparency of watercolours with the bold lines of ink, resulting in stunning contrasts and dynamic compositions.
