Art Nouveau Illustrations on Your iPad in Procreate
I absolutely love everything Art Nouveau — the colors, the fluidity, the botanicals — so this class was a true labor of love! In the class, you’ll learn how to create three different kinds of Art Nouveau style illustrations on your iPad in Procreate.
When you take this class you’ll get all of the brushes and stamps I use to make my art nouveau illustrations including 10 composition templates, 12 backgrounds and illustration elements, 11 texture brushes, and a few drawing and shading brushes.
We’ll start the class by using a drawing book published in 1904 to learn the techniques and forms that artists and designers in the Art Nouveau era used. I’ll show you how to get the book as a free download so you can use the exercises to practice drawing flowers, leaves, and decorative elements in an art nouveau style.
Then we’ll create a line drawing using the technique in the book, and use watercolor texture to give the drawing some variation and contrast.
Next we’ll look at how to build up color and texture to turn your line drawings into a vibrant frame around a quote.
I created an Art Nouveau font that I’ll share with you as a free download, so you can add text with an art nouveau feel to your compositions.
Next we’ll use a reductive drawing process to create a flowing border made of fruit and leaves. We’ll look at options for creating overlapping elements, and talk about ways to give your work the fluid feel that you see in Art Nouveau illustrations. We’ll also look at how to create a pattern brush, so you can add a layer of subtle pattern behind your compositions.
Last we’ll combine plants, animals, and patterns in an overlapping composition with texture and playful movement.
You can use the work you create in this class for print on demand projects, gifts, social media, or your website. By the time you finish this class, you’ll be able to depict any object or decoration in an art nouveau style.
