March 2018

Next Monday, March 26th, I’ll be releasing my newest course titled Watercolor Florals for Graphic Design! I’m often asked how I created this watercolor leaves and florals kit, so I thought I’d share the entire process, from start to finish. In the course, you’ll learn how to paint, scan, digitize, enhance and sell digital watercolor florals. Part of creating florals meant to be used digitally (in Illustrator, Photoshop or templates you’d like to sell) require them to be created individually (vs. painting a full bouquet). Once they’re created and edited, you can then create an infinite number of arrangement and bouquet combinations using them. This makes painting just a few florals to start with really powerful, because they can lead to a large kit full of options.

Even though the course officially opens next Monday, today I wanted to share a video from the course on how to paint 4 loose style small watercolor florals. I’m giving away the course’s clickable resources list for free in this post, so you’ll have everything  you need to get started. If you’re an Every-Tuesday subscriber, you’ll also receive a special gift in your email the day the course opens 😉 Read on for the full tutorial and free resources download!

A few weeks ago, I shared some watercolor texture tricks using brush pens and I thought it’d be fun to follow it up with lettering effects! If you’re short on space, brush pens are a great alternative for creating beautiful + vibrant watercolor creations. In this week’s video, I’ll take you through 3 of my favorite watercolor lettering effects using brush pens!
