About This Class

In this class, I'll show you how to use the iPad app Procreate to make watercolor paintings that look like real pigment on paper.  Procreate doesn’t come with any high quality watercolor brushes, so I created 9 brushes and a watercolor paper texture that I want to share with you as free downloads.  

I’ll show you how to:

  • use my brushes to create watercolor effects lIke wet on wet, layering, and blending
  • use textured paper to bring a real watercolor texture into your paintings
  • turn a photograph into a sketch
  • paint over your sketch with watercolor brushes

If you’ve never used P rocreate before, don’t worry, I’ll show you every step of my process so even if you’re a complete beginner you can easily follow along with this class.  

You'll learn how to create:

  • an abstract watercolor painting
  • a more realistic illustration style painting
  • and a calligraphy cutout

If you already know a lot about Procreate, you may want to skip to my more advanced classes on watercolors in Procreate.  You can check those out here.

Great class! Liz covered the basics of creating watercolor effects in Procreate. Nice pace - slow enough to keep up with her on brand new concepts, but not too bogged down. The free brushes & watercolor paper are excellent. I plan to take all of Liz's courses.
clear instruction and easy to follow ....
Very professional videography. I like the teacher's laid back manner. She presents a lot of information and informative comments in a way that is pleasant to hear and digest. Thank you for instruction that I think I will take forward for a long time!
