About this class:

If you’ve taken some of my classes already, you might have noticed that I’m a little bit obsessed with digital watercolour! I have made so many watercolour brushes that it is sometimes hard to choose which ones to use! I have narrowed it down to my favorite 20, which I am supplying with the class. We will be focussing on exploring these brushes, and using them to paint some fresh, fun geraniums. We will be using traditional watercolor techniques to make our digital watercolor look authentic. And, of course, there'll be plenty of tips thrown in too! This class is suitable for all levels, though some Procreate knowledge is definitely an asset.

At the end of my class, you will have learned more about Procreate and composition, especially how to use layers, clipping masks, the selection tool, and how to add texture, volume and color variation to your floral.

In this class, you’ll learn how to replicate traditional messy watercolor digitally and then we’ll add on skills, simple techniques and methods as the course progresses. This allows you to capitalize on all of the advantages of painting digitally. Everything is step-by-step so you’ll be able to follow along even if you’ve never painted with real watercolors before. I explain the behaviours of real watercolours as we work our way through and explain how to achieve those looks digitally.

Besides having no mess when you’re painting, there are so many other advantages. Don’t you love the undo to make mistakes literally disappear? You can’t do that with the natural media! You can adjust one part of your painting without affecting nearby elements, and I explain how to use saturation, brightness and hue adjustments to perk up dull color. I provide a paper-textures document AND 20 brushes (my favourites) so nothing is left to chance!

In this class I’ll walk you through:

  • step-by-step methods for working in digital watercolour
  • authentic accents like water drops, spatter and smears
  • adding texture using the paper document supplied
  • tips for adjusting compositions for different uses
  • methods for keeping the art fully editable for later adjustments and recoloring 

I think you will enjoy this class, particularly the efficiency strategies I build in. I will show you how to accomplish digitally what normally needs to be done with natural media and takes so much time. This class should get you started and show you what is ultimately possible. With the provided assets and the step-by-step instructions, you’ll be finishing a unique and lovely piece in short order!!

The key concepts I will include:

  • review of watercolour brushes such as mops and blenders
  • a look at adjusting the size and orientation of a document for alternate uses
  • approaches you can take for adding lettering

Learning watercolour techniques will give you an exciting new set of skills and techniques. With watercolour digital art there are so many expressive methods you can learn. I anticipate you will produce and amazing piece! 

The Project

I start the class in landscape mode but by the end of it, we have a portrait mode artwork which can be used for 5" x 7" greeting cards.
