Easy Flower Painting With Procreate: New Class!

I'll be the first to admit, I don't like or care about flowers, I'm more of a green leafy plant type… 

But I LOVE drawing and painting them.

I don't know why, but I think it has something to do with how each one is so different. How even if you think it looks nothing like a flower, as long as you add a stem and leaves, it magically becomes one. They look perfect as detailed drawings, and as super abstract paintings.

I also love painting flowers on my iPad. It’s the perfect activity for long doctor office waits, airplanes, busses, road trips or boring nights on the couch.

After spending many, many, many hours in Procreate using it for lettering, painting and making worksheets, I finally decided to release a class that focuses on digital painting.

You do? I knew it!

Let me give you some advice, or more like…”This is what worked for me, you’re welcome to try it out”.

There’s a lot of talk from seasoned artists about leaving Etsy and having their own shop on their website or Shopify. The issue comes down to seller fees.

But, if you are a beginner, Etsy is the best thing for you. Heck, I still use it and I have no plans of leaving anytime soon.

Are you looking to expand you lettering skills beyond the simple drills and simple strokes? Many beginners get stuck in the endless loop of practicing simple strokes, over and over. And while that is perfectly fine and something I highly recommend, I believe we need to step out of our comfort zone and explore something a bit more difficult.
