Hello and welcome to another tutorial. Today we'll be working on this Allamanda Illustration using the premium brushes from the Ultimate Watercolor Brush Set for Procreate. Please download the tutorial files before we begin. You'll find the tutorial PDF, sketch, and swatch palette in the download link above.
If you're ready, let's begin!
First, sketch out the composition using the Peppermint or 6B brush. Once you're done, lower the opacity and lock this layer.
Step 1: Now add a paper background using Freya Paper Texture No. 4 in a light grey color. Set the layer to Linear Burn and lock this layer. This layer should be on top of all the succeeding layers so that its texture will apply to the entire artwork. In another layer, start coloring the base using Freya Wet on Wet No. 4. Lighter shades to the outer areas, darker shades in between petals and under folds.
Step 2: Add more structure by using the Freya Wet on Dry No. 6. In another layer, you can add a bit of background detail using Freya Wet on Wet No. 9.
Step 3: Now add a clipping mask on top of the flower layer. Using the Freya Wet on Dry No. 17 brush, slowly paint without raising the pen. This will create a watered down effect. In another layer, start painting the leaves with the Freya Wet on Dry No. 6 Brush. Do not lift your pen while painting the shape of the leaf so that you have one solid shape.
Step 4: Use stamps to add the finishing touches! In this tutorial I used Freya Stamp Brush no. 27, 19 and 6. But feel free to try out the other stamp brushes in the set.
