About This Class

I want to show you three ways to paint watercolor figures on your iPad.  

  • First we’ll create a simple line drawing, and use watercolors to add color to the figure.  I’ll show you how to create variation and depth in the paints so your paintings look like real pigment on paper.
  • Next we’ll use a sketch as a guide to create a watercolor figure.  I’ll show you how to add layers of darkness and highlights to the figure so it’s clear where the light source is coming from in the painting.
  • Then we’ll create a messy watercolor painting by painting over a photograph with loose and painterly watercolor strokes.

You can use the processes I’ll show you to create fashion illustrations, family portraits, or painterly watercolor art.

I created 10 watercolor brushes and a watercolor texture paper that I want to share with you as a free download when you take this class.  You can download the paper and brushes here. If you aren’t sure how to install the brushes, check out my first class on watercolors in Procreate.  In that class I cover all the Procreate basics, so if you aren’t familiar with Procreate you may want to start there.

Let's get started!
