Paint Modern Gouache Florals on Your iPad + 7 FREE Brushes

Paint Modern Gouache Florals on Your iPad + 7 FREE Brushes

After working with watercolors for years, I was ready to make a big change and go back to an opaque medium.  I created 7 gouache brushes for Procreate that you can use to create realistic gouache paintings.

In the class I cover:

  • how to use the brushes with a layering process to create a realistic gouache effect

  • some leaf and flower shapes that you can use to practice your painting.

  • how to create a floral bouquet using various flowers and leaves.

  • how I plan out my bouquet paintings, and give you some tips and tricks for creating contrast and balance.

I’ll show you every step of my process from planning a composition to painting realistic gouache florals. First I’ll show you how to use the brushes to create beautiful layering effects.

Then we’ll look at a few easy ways to make leaf and flower shapes.  I made some practice sheets that you get as a free download when you take the class, and you can use those to get practice some shapes and layering.

Then we’ll create two bold modern floral bouquet’s with two different layouts from start to finish.​
