Part 3: Butterflies with Eva Lai

Some say that nature is the best designer. Never has that been more true than in the intricate patterns of the vibrant butterfly. Eva will show you how to create stunning, rich, crisp colour work in watercolor, as well as adding texture through layering and blending wax pastels and watercolour pencils. You'll discover the versatility of Caran d'Ache materials with novel techniques involving the spray bottle, as well as the playful dips, drips and splats you can achieve with brushwork. Caran d'Ache Materials explored: Supracolor, Neocolor II, spray bottle

Part 4: Portraits with Heloise O'Keeffe

Portraits are perhaps the most challenging and the most rewarding subject to master. Heloise will walk you through how to initially sketch your subject, working with a mirror, reference image, or taking a short-cut with a MasterPeace lightbox. You'll explore achieving skin tones through careful colour mixing and blending. Caran d'Ache Materials explored: Neocolor II, Supracolor Soft Aquarelle, Luminance, spray bottle
