Welcome to another free tutorial! Before we begin, download and unpack the tutorial files. You'll find the PDF version of this tutorial, a sketch image, 5 sampler brushes and a color palette swatch file included in the download folder.
Step 1: Begin by drawing the sketch of our composition using a 6b or Peppermint brush. Lower the opacity and lock this layer. Create a layer under the sketch. Add the background texture using the Freya Gouache Paper No. 4. On another layer, start adding the base colors using Freya Gouache Thick No. 1 brush.
Step 2: Start building the details using Freya Gouache Thick No. 10, Freya Gouache Thick No. 1, and Freya Goauche Rolling No. 4. I would recommend using different layers for each element of your drawing so that it'll be easier to tweak later on.
Step 3: Now add depth to your elements by creating well-placed shadows and highlights. Use Freya Gouache Thick No. 10 and Freya Gouache Thin No. 10 for this part.
Step 4: Finally add the finishing touches! Use Freya Gouache Thin No. 10 in light tapping strokes to create your sugar sprinkles. Then use Freya Gouache Thin No. 10 to add shadows and highlights to the glass. And finish off with a background accent using Freya Gouache Thick No. 1 and Freya Gouache Rolling No. 4.
