About This Class

I'm a sucker for painting: it's meditative and incredibly satisfying to create with watercolors. And the textures are difficult to mimic digitally. But the iPad is also incredibly versatile. 

But who says you have to choose one or the other: the iPad or painting with watercolors? In this class I share how to take advantage of both digital and traditional mediums and combine them. I share tips for using your iPad to create better watercolor paintings, masking techniques in Procreate, and how to blend both painting styles together naturally. 

Special thanks to Daniel Berg-Johnsen of for help filming and Ryan Little for the music. Want to see what I'm working on now? Follow me on instagram
