Winter Watercolors on your iPad in Procreate + 20 Free Procreate Brushes

Winter Watercolors on your iPad in Procreate + 20 Free Procreate Brushes

As soon as Halloween passes I always start filling my Procreate gallery with snowflakes, fall leaves, and holiday wreaths!  I just published my new class on winter watercolors and wanted to show you some of the brushes and compositions you’ll see in the class.

In the class, I’ll show you how to create tons of winter inspired watercolors on your iPad in Procreate.  When you watch the class, you’ll get all of my watercolor brushes and templates as free downloads, plus my watercolor paper texture paper, glitter and gold papers, and some snowflake shapes to get you started.

First we’ll take a look at a few different digital watercolor techniques, so you know how to create watercolors that work best for your personal style.  Then we’ll combine watercolor snowflakes with a banner and a short winter inspired quote.

Next we’ll create a watercolor wreath using a direct painting method.  I’ll show you all the winter plant shapes that I like to paint and cover some easy tips for turning any plant shape into a watercolor illustration for your wreath.

Then we’ll use a masking method to create a winter plant filled word.  We’ll combine leaves, berries, and pine needles to bring a winter feel to a quote.

You can use the processes you learn in the class to turn any word, phrase, or illustration into a winter inspired piece.  Once you learn the process, you’ll see how easy it is to create a winter watercolor illustration in a few minutes!  All you need to take the class is your iPad and a stylus.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
