About This Class


In this class, I'll show you how to create ink and watercolor botanical illustrations.   I’ll show you every step of my process from sourcing images to composing a framed quote illustration.  You'll learn:

  • how to create freehand drawings and add shadow and depth to your lines.
  • how to trace a photograph of a plant to create an ink illustration.
  • how to find images that are free for personal and commercial use.
  • how to paint watercolors in Procreate.

In the class, we'll use one of our ink drawings to frame a quote.  Then we’ll add color to the drawing and create a realistic multi-shade watercolor effect.  Next we’ll combine a bunch of flowers, leaves, and grasses to create a botanical menagerie that you could use to frame text like a quote, a birth announcement, an invitation, or any other project you come up with.

I created some watercolor brushes and a watercolor texture paper that I’ll share with you as a free download when you take this class and I’ll show you how to use the brushes to create beautiful ink and watercolor illustrations.

All you need to take this course is an iPad and a stylus.  I like to use the Apple pencil because it's pressure sensitive, but you can use any stylus or even your finger.

Click here to get the brushes, paper, and image source links.  The password for the downloads is on the slide shown for 10 seconds at the very beginning of video 2.

Every class I create is broken down into bite sized pieces so you can learn how to draw and design on your iPad by learning one little step at a time.  I design projects that anyone can create, and give tips for designing that will help you develop your own style and process.
