Watercolor Hand Lettering on Your iPad in Procreate + Free Brushes and Paper Texture
Watercolor hand lettering is one of the quickest (and most satisfying) projects I like to make when I’m in a creative rut. It’s a great way to play around with color and blending, without worrying about making a perfect composition. Hand lettering is in its very nature playful and sometimes messy, so its the perfect tool for loosening up your hand and mind.
In this class, I’ll show you every step of my process from planning out the composition to creating a realistic watercolor effect on each letter. You don’t have to be good at hand lettering to create these pieces, because I’ll show you how to use downloaded fonts as a template for your lettering. If you love hand lettering though, you can use your own lettering as your template.
In the class, I’ll show you how to:
- use a masking process to create a quote with multiple text styles and watercolor variation
- balance light and dark areas to create a real watercolor look.
- use a free hand watercolor process, then add multiple colors and shades to the quote to add tons of variation
- use shapes to decorate the outside of a quote
Once you learn the steps, you’ll be able apply them to a wide range of digital and printable projects. You could use this technique to create greeting cards, art prints, or print on demand shops. Or you could use the process to create images for your website, social media, or digital downloads.
All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus. I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
I also created some digital planner stickers to go along with the class, which you can pick up as a free download here.
