Paint Tropical Watercolor Fruit on Your iPad in Procreate

fruit cover website croppedWatercolor fruit is one of the easiest things to paint, and as a bonus, you get to use tons of bright and vibrant colors.  These are great for making seamless repeats, greeting cards, or a colorful desktop background.

In the class, I’ll show you the easy steps to paint tropical watercolor fruit on your iPad in Procreate.  I’ll show you how to work from both pictures and real life, so whether you’re at home looking at some fruit on your kitchen table or sitting in the airport, you can use this process to create a beautiful watercolor painting.

I’ll show you how I get inspiration for my images, and how I set up photographs for watercolor sketches.  

When you watch this class, you’ll get the 9 watercolor brushes that I created for Procreate, plus the watercolor texture paper that I use to add a real watercolor texture to my paintings.

I’ll show you:

  • how to do a simple pen and ink drawing, then add layers of watercolor to the drawing to get a simple and soft watercolor look.
  • how to use a masking process to mask out portions of a lemon slice, then fill those masked sections with layers of watercolor.
  • how to create a pencil drawing, then build up layers of color to create a loose watercolor painting.

The techniques in this class can be used to create any watercolor painting, so once you learn the steps, you can apply this process to any objects you want to paint!

I used my watercolor fruit images to make some digital planner stickers, which you can pick up as a free download here.
