Each workshop will be divided into 5 stages. At the end of each stage Ian will pause to answer your questions LIVE and to allow participants time to catch up or take a short break. 

Using a Limited Palette

Ian will only use 4 colours for each workshop. The colours are listed next to each workshop below. This can be a challenge but the result is often a more cohesive overall sketch--take the challenge!
