Who says you have to choose between the iPad or your watercolors?

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.

A whole new world just opened up to me! Always wanted to play with digital without quitting hand paint and now I can do both. Thanks so much !

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your class and time just flew! Thank you so much for sharing Brooke. This is exactly what I was looking for. Love how you combine the advantages of watercolour and digital drawing together. The fun of watercolour drawing cannot be replaced! I’m going to try doing zentangle with real watercolour on procreate:)

Thanks, Brooke! This is exactly what is was looking for. I’ve been trying to incorporate my watercolor paintings into Procreate, and you just showed me how easy it was to do that. I can’t wait to watch more of your videos. - Julie

I really loved the class and learned a lot about combining my love of watercolors with Procreate. Thank you SO much for this class. It was so helpful to see several different examples of techniques, and I can't wait to try the techniques learned to see what I can create by combining traditional watercolor and digital illustration in procreate.

I started this class on a whim because I am a huge Procreate fan, and ended up loving every second of it! I picked up several useful tips that I didn't know about before, and really enjoyed how Brooke's examples incorporated so many different areas of using Procreate that you might not have explored before. Highly recommend!
