Is this workshop suitable for beginners?

Yes. Ian will assume no prior experience and will take you carefully through each of the steps in his process as he is doing it – from blank page to the shapes and colours he uses, through to finished artwork.

Is this a live event?

No. This workshop is a recording of a previous live event. You’ll be able to speed up and slow down the recording so that you can learn at your own pace.

What supplies will I need for this workshop?

You are free to work with whatever tools you have available, but here is Ian’s supply list:  


  • A3 watercolour paper. Preferably hot press 300gsm.
  • Tombow Brush Pens – black and a range of greys, particularly the lighter greys – N15, N79, N89, N95
  • Black fine liner pens – from 0.1 – 0.5 Pilot, Staedtler, Faber Castell, Derwent – any of these brands are fine.
  • Watercolour pan set– Ian uses Winsor and Newton but any good brand will do. The most common colours in Ian’s range are black, white, cadmium yellow, cadmium red, quinacridone gold, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, raw umber, cobalt turquoise light, cerulean blue, ultramarine blue, winsor blue.
  • Watercolour brushes – variety of sizes from flats to riggers to small round heads.
What is the difference between workshops & demonstration sketches?

Ian’s demonstration sketches are done at his usual (much faster) pace. Although you’re free to follow-along, you might struggle to keep up with Ian, so the purpose is really to watch him producing his work live on screen which takes around an hour.

This sketching workshop, on the hand, is a learning experience that takes around 3 hours.

You’ll be working alongside Ian and the other learners at a slower, more relaxed pace. Ian will take you through each stage in the process – explaining everything he’s doing and why he’s doing it. There will also be regular pauses to give you a chance to catch up. You’ll also have access to this workshop to watch over and over again.
