Watercolor Leaves on Your iPad in Procreate
Hi everyone, I’ve been planning this class for a long time so I’m glad to finally be able to click publish! The class is all about how to use Procreate on your iPad to create watercolor leaves that look like real pigment on paper. Everyone who takes the class, gets my free watercolor brushes for Procreate!
I love painting watercolor leaves on paper, but honestly, I prefer working on my iPad now that I have my techniques down pat. I wasted so much paper when I used real watercolors because I like to paint quickly and intuitively. This digital process lets me forget about the paper use so I can focus on color, shapes, and layering.
In the class I cover:
three styles for painting leaves including single color, multi-shade, and multi-color techniques.
how to construct a wreath with layers of color that look like real watercolor pigment on paper.
how to paint a leaf menagerie by bringing together a bunch of different plant shapes and colors.
While I’m happy with what I made in the class, I’m absolutely in love with the images coming in from other artists and designers who have taken the class. Check out this beautiful branch by surface pattern designer Jozefien Depauw:She clearly mastered the process! In the class, I show how to create watercolor wreaths, and how to adjust the background so you can choose between a watercolor texture paper (left), and a white background (right).
In this class you’ll learn all the steps for combining lettering and illustration to create compositions that both tell a story and are visually interesting!
Learn how to use layered texture and color to add depth and visual interest to your illustrations. We’ll look at how to create overall textures, how to use texture to create highlights and shading, and how to use single and multi colored texture to bring out warm and cool tones in your illustrations.
Learn how to design a pattern collection on your iPad from start to finish. I’ll show you options for making your repeat elements in both Procreate and Affinity designer, so you can choose which option works best for you!
Learn how to create 70s style hand lettering and decoration from start to finish. We’ll cover everything you need to know to add the kind of bold color, drastic variation, and playful decorations that were so popular in the 70s and are now popping up all over in the design world on stationary, clothing, home decor.
Learn how to create limited color illustrations and palettes on your iPad in Procreate. We’ll cover every step of the process from building new palettes to creating illustrations that are ideal for limited palettes.
In this class, you’ll learn three different ways to use ink lines and dots to add shadow, highlights, and depth to your work. We’ll look at tons of tips and tricks for hatching, crosshatching, and stippling, and talk about how to add bold color to your linework to add variation and contrast that makes your work stand out online and in print.
