Flat Florals in Procreate by Teela Cunningham
Every Tuesday Course Trailer

Simplifying with Ease

Create stunning, simplified florals in a variety of flat styles.

What are Flat Florals?

The flat style is created with solid colored organic and geometric shapes, absent of gradients and texture. But don’t let that fool you! This style can be expansive with variation opportunities by adding simplified, solid details, flat style depth and more.

Project 1

After a series of practice exercises, we put our new skills to work in Project 1! In this project, we paint a basic floral with simple foliage and apply 3 different variations of the flat style to it: basic flat color, outlined with detail and multicolored details with simple flat depth.

Project 3

After a series of complex floral practice exercises, we freehand a simple composition with a complex (overlapping petaled) flower. We create this project in two variations: basic flat, and flat depth, where we strategically draw and define shadows for extra, flat style dimension.

Project 4

We dive into the complex section of course projects beginning with Project 4! In this project, we make a multi element vertical arrangement, complete with multiple hero florals, supporting florals and foliage elements. We bring it to life with flat shadow details and strategic color selection and placement.

Complex Vertical Arrangement

Project 5

In Project 5, we create a horizontal arrangement in a fall theme. We push the illusion of dimension with this project by using different colored petals based on hierarchy along with strong flat style shadow elements. We support our complex florals with berries, sprigs and large leafy branches for a balanced, multidimensional piece.

Project 6

In our grand finale project, we pack everything in! We begin by creating a family of 3 mini bouquets, then strategically position and divide them into a seamless, repeat pattern.

We take additional steps in the pattern creation to develop one with a transparent background, allowing the user to choose any background color they’d like for extra versatility.

    Successfully completing this course requires:

    Procreate App(v. 5.2.9 or newer)

    This course was created using v.5.2.9 of the Procreate app, so you’ll need to be on that version or newer to follow along.

    Apple iPad

    We utilize pressure variation within some of our brushes, so you’ll need to have an iPad that supports pressure sensitivity. A list of iPads that offer this are available here.

    An iPad Stylus(pressure sensitive)

    Since we’re utilizing pressure sensitivity settings, you’ll need a stylus that is compatible with your iPad. An Apple Pencil is recommended, but other 3rd party styluses may also work.

    Familiarity with the Procreate interface

    The course builds in complexity as it progresses, making it a great fit for both beginner level and experienced Procreate users. If you’re brand new to Procreate, I recommend taking my free Procreate for Beginners course first so you’ll be able to follow along more comfortably.

    Yes! There are English subtitles available for all videos.

    What will I need to take this class?

    You’ll need the Procreate app (v.5.2.9 or newer), a pressure sensitive iPad (see this list: every-tuesday.com/ipads), a stylus compatible with that iPad (I recommend the Apple Pencil) and a familiarity with Procreate (my free Procreate for Beginners course is recommended as a prerequisite).

    Yes! If you can draw irregular, imperfect shapes, then you can create every project within the course. I show you everything you need to know and offer resources to guide you if you ever get stuck along the way.

    If I recreate these projects following your instruction, can I sell that artwork afterward?

    You may use any of the brushes, color palettes and techniques provided in the class to create your own unique artwork to sell. You may not sell recreated class projects, as they are my own original artwork + concepts.
