I have loved painting watercolor wreaths on paper for years, but had trouble translating the same style into my digital work. For this class though, I dug deep into my favorite watercolor wreaths on paper and recreated them in digital form.

In the class I’ll show you every step of my process from planning out the layout to sketching, painting, and blending. When you take this class, you’ll get the watercolor brushes I made for Procreate, plus my watercolor texture paper as free downloads.
I’ll show you how to:
- use a direct painting method using a single bold color to create an abstract floral wreath
- create a watercolor text effect, and how to add multiple watercolor shades to the botanical elements
- create a multi-colored leaf wreath using a masking process
- add multiple colors to your piece to create a multi-dimensional look
- create an asymmetrical wreath using a masking method to create rough watercolor edges
- paint basic plant shapes like roses, and leaves
You can use the wreaths you make in this class as digital or printable art. You could even sell your wreaths as digital downloads on a site like Etsy, or use a print on demand site like Society 6 to sell the painting on finished products.
I made my wreaths into digital planner stickers, which you can pick up as a free download here.
