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.
As usual, the artists and designers who have already taken the class are blowing it out of the water with their unique illustrations.
Hand letterer Tabitha @_mommy_doodles_ used the process and brushes from the class to create this gorgeous botanical illustration with hand lettering:
Artist and crafter Anna Ritson created this airy pelican illustration. She made the process her own with muted colors and layered watercolors that make this truly look like real watercolor on paper!
Artist & Designer Shiela Roos combines her incredible illustration skills with the process and brushes from the class to create her travel journal illustrations that make me want to start a travel journal immediately!
And artist and Illustrator Herma Starreveld created this gorgeous piece of nostalgia with textured watercolors to create a reflection effect on aluminum and glass.
In this class I’ll show you how to turn a picture into an ink illustration, and how to color over it with my watercolor brushes. After you take the class, you’ll be able to turn any object into a gorgeous watercolor illustration in minutes!
