Procreate Watercolor Brushes and What to Paint with Them

Watercolor is a wonderful and versatile medium that can be used to achieve a variety of effects, from delicate washes to bold, vibrant brushstrokes. Sure, sometimes it can be difficult to work with, but the results are often well worth the effort!

It also encourages experimentation and creativity. Experimenting with different brushstrokes, differing amounts of water in your paints, and layering different colors to achieve a variety of effects can result in satisfaction and enjoyment for artists of all levels.

Plus, watercolor paints are lightweight and portable, making them easy to transport wherever you go! And with the digital era, making watercolor paintings has never been easier thanks to Procreate! This means you can paint anywhere you are, whether at home, on vacation, or in nature.
