You mean you can paint watercolors on your iPad?? Yes, and they actually look like real watercolor on paper! I developed a process that lets you create a realistic watercolor effect on your iPad in a few easy steps. The best part is you can do this anywhere — curled up on your couch in your pajamas, sitting on a park bench, or sipping a latte in a cafe!
I love making simple illustrations and coloring them with layers of watercolor. The effect is a muted illustration with an airy feel that looks just like real watercolor paint on paper.
When you watch any of my digital watercolor classes you get my free watercolor brushes for Procreate!
In this class I go through my favorite ways to create illustrations including drawing from memory, as well as tracing. Tracing is a great way to loosen up when you’re not sure what to draw, or don’t feel confident with your drawing skills.
