About This Class


I want to show you how to paint modern gouache florals on your iPad.  I’ll show you every step of my process from planning a composition to painting realistic gouache florals.

I designed 7 gouache brushes for Procreate that I want to share with you as a free download when you take this class.  The brushes include both dry and wet versions of opaque and transparent gouache.

I’ll show you:

  • how to use the brushes with a layering process to create a realistic gouache effect
  • some leaf and flower shapes that you can use to practice your painting.  I created four practice sheets with 12 different leaves and flowers that you can copy or use as inspiration to start painting your own floral style.
  • how to create a floral bouquet using various flowers and leaves. 
  • how I plan out my bouquet paintings, and give you some tips and tricks for creating contrast and balance.
  • how to create a bold modern floral menagerie.  We’ll use a layering technique to create a colorful piece of artwork that you could use as an art print, the front of a greeting card, or a digital download.

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.

You can get the free brushes and practice sheets here.  (the password is shown at the beginning of the class.
