This week’s tut comes courtesy of Kristen, who requested a tut showing how to create watercolor ceramic vase highlights within Procreate. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to throw a little pop of fall into it, too, since we’re [already/finally?] nearing the end of September 🙂

This tutorial is one of my more advanced ones, so the pace is a bit quicker. We utilize layer masking, clipping masks, smudging, blend modes and lettering for a beautiful fall vase you can add any messaging to. This tut was fully created using my watercolor illustration brushes (linked above).
