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.

Click to download the paper and brushes. The password for the downloads is on the slide shown for 10 seconds at the very beginning of video 2.

Great class! She shows you how to set up an actual canvas for watercolor and shares all of her brushes in the class. They are the best brushes I've seen for watercolor yet! Highly recommended class! I learned a ton!
