As a Guide:
I'd recommend just relaxing with a cuppa enjoying the mayhem.
... taking notes. sketch, pallet, brushes etc. , ask any questions.
How to get there is the really important thing, when I've joined
sessions with Artists I admire I tend to make notes and maybe
on small piece of paper or pad doodle test of a method that catches  attention.
Make sure to remind me to hit the record button and you'll get
the video to watch over the next day.  

When you've had a go send in a copy for the online members gallery, we always start the morning with a reflection of the previous weeks subject, NOT a critical but a chat and thoughts Q&A and encouragement
for going forward.
Also if you need a little hour fast-track one to one zoom session for a small
charge (£17.50) - just shout we'll go through specific how-to techniques etc.

If you'd like to join in, here are some items I'll be using - don't worry if you don't have these, it's just a guide for your reference:

Paper & Brushes

Paper -
Personally I don't have a favourite brand, but I do use mostly a "Not" finished paper and buy the heaviest weight I can afford at the time. names / brands that come to mind are Seawhites/Jacksons/Bockingford/Saunders Waterford/Lanfgton just so many - steer clear of £1 land watercolour pads that are like blotting papr.
I tend to stretch my paper to a board, it's really easy watch my video here.
Brushes -
I surpisingly use few brushes - favourites / most used revolve around Terry Harrison brushes available online -
Medium/Large Mop Brush - perfect for big areas such as sky and foregrond. Squirell hair is best as it holds the most water.Rigger Brush - a longer thin brush, perfect for branches, railings and long thin lines - the most important brush of all used to tighten and finalise our painting - invaluable.
