Mimic the look of real watercolor lettering in Procreate

Beginner Friendly

Step-by-step narration with closeups on all the details, so you feel confident in the process from start to finish.

A Versatile Process

Since every lettering style is different, this process has been fine-tuned to fit any situation. You’ll be able to achieve a realistic watercolor effect when you apply it to any style - hand lettered or typed.

Blend Options

You may want an ombré, one color, smooth transitions blend with one of your pieces and a multi-colored blend with water pockets on another. This course serves up 5 different blend options, so you’ll have plenty to choose from when you begin your next lettering piece.

Florals + Foliage Integration

Take your watercolor lettering even further by integrating florals and foliage! A bonus florals foundations module is included, so even if you’ve never painted florals before, you’ll be able to follow along and complete every project in the class.

Options for Every Style

This course is packed with 8 different watercolor lettering projects, so you have plenty of options to integrate the techniques into your own lettering in the future. Start simple with a one color fade technique, then move into an alternating letter blend. Follow those up with one color lettering with saturation bleeds and foliage details. Move onto a two color, then a multi-color, color drop technique with water pockets and downstroke opacity reductions. Next, enhance your watercolor lettering with foliage and florals as you move through 3 different variations: a script initial with floral details, a letter filled with florals and foliage and a fall themed letter surrounded by leafy watercolors. There’s something for everyone to push their Procreate and digital watercolor lettering skills further.

Project 1

In the first project of this course, you’ll learn how to create a watercolor ombré effect by creating smooth transitions from dark to light. We’ll use a font for this, add in some saturated edging and finish things off with some extra texture and splatter details.

Project 2

In Project #2, we alternate the colors of our letters, then blend them believably together using the included watercolor bleed brush. We finish it up by adding in the extra details that really bring it to life with reduced opacity downstrokes, saturated edging and paint splatter.

Project 3

Our third project marries a base color and saturated color ‘drops’, blended throughout. Final details of dark edging and paint splatter are added, and we even paint in some simple leaves to enhance the final look.

Project 4

Using everything learned in the previous projects, we blend two different colors together and create areas of low opacity, which I call water pockets. These are areas in the lettering, that if it were real watercolor, would have a water pool, creating lots of transparency in the color. This variation from high to low transparency in addition to the two colors blending together creates a really eye catching, realistic outcome.

Project 5

Taking the same methods used in the previous project, we introduce additional colors and decorative elements while still maintaining those beautiful water pockets. Everything is enhanced further with reduced opacity downstrokes and saturated edging.

Bonus Module: Floral + Foliage Foundations

One way to take your watercolor lettering even further is by introducing florals + foliage within a beautiful composition! In this bonus module, I share my method for painting both realistic and freehand/loose style florals and foliage. Use these tips within the next 3 projects for eye catching results!

Project 6

In our first project integrating florals and foliage, we create a script initial surrounded and intertwined with florals. We spend time planning out our final layout, then layer everything properly and utilize layer masks for a beautifully blended watercolor outcome.

Project 7

Using florals and foliage differently within typography, we fill an entire letter in Project 7. We focus on variation and scale for a balanced composition of loose style florals and foliage.

Project 8

In the final project of the class, we create a fall themed letter, surrounded by watercolor leaves. We use a new watercolor illustration approach, by creating loose watercolor washes overlaid with sketches. We fill in remaining gaps so once the template letter is removed, the negative space naturally creates a letter, surrounded by watercolor doodles.
