How to Draw Pansies – A Floral Step by Step Procreate Tutorial

Hi guys, I’m Kris. Welcome to this week’s tutorial. Let’s draw together.

In this week’s tutorial, we’re drawing a cute bunch of pansies in Procreate and I’m sure you can create this too, if you follow along all the way to the end. If you feel rushed, just be sure to hit that pause button and rewind to catch up and save this video to your library so you can re-watch if you need some extra practice.

Today we’ll be using all free brushes found in Procreate. And don’t forget that once you finish this entire video to share it on Instagram, tag me in the images as well as the description, so I can find it and feature your artwork here on the next Draw Together video. So for this video, I’ve made you a free colour palette just in case you’d like to use the same colours as me during this tutorial, and you can just tap on the link in the video description below where you can download and install it.

And also below, you’ll find a link to a goody bag where there’s some free illustrative goodies in there for you, I love to give to you. And also there is a link to my shop, so you can go check out what’s going on over there.

Let’s Jump In

So let’s create our canvas at 4000 x 4000 pixels, 300 DPI and sRGB. I’m just gonna grab my… Just a black here, and we’re gonna start with a sketch, so I’m gonna go to sketching and 6B pencil. I’m gonna have my pencil at about… Oh, I don’t know, 45%, just so you can see it, and I’m just gonna start by getting some shapes going and just getting an idea of where I want these flowers to be.

So I’m just gonna start with a circle and bring my centre point here. And the way pansies go, they have a few layers of petals. So I’m gonna bring one out here, it’s gonna be like that. Another one’s gonna be maybe like this, gonna have two behind here.

Oops, maybe not quite like that. Two behind here, they’ll overlap, kinda come out here. Maybe a bit more up there, like so, and then there’s gonna be this petal here, the one that kind of… I don’t know, goes around like this. So that should be a good… This is gonna be five petals total, so that’s fine for that one, I’m just gonna shrink that down just a touch.

Get That Circle

Bring them over there, maybe in the centre. The next one I’m gonna have over here, maybe they will be touching, just gonna get that circle, gonna have that… It’s gonna be… Have this one out in front, this lower guy, something like that. Sort of these three are always kind of in that design, and then two in the back can vary.

This one, maybe it will come over more, and this one will be… Maybe that’s a little bit too much, hold on. Over like that, and this guy, the fifth one will pop in at the back there. And then we’ll have one over here, that’ll be the centre of this guy, this front one, coming in here. Okay, and then he’s gonna be over here, back one… Okay, so that’s sort of where we want those guys to be.

Great, so then we’re gonna get the stems, and they will start from where the base is, so you can get an idea. It’s a little bit on the thicker side, and this guy is gonna kind of… Maybe he’ll curve a little bit more like that, will be about there. This guy will be coming in like that. Okay, and then some leaves. Sort of like so. I’m bringing him in like that. I’m trying to decide. Actually, maybe we’re gonna have a little bud that’s coming up here to fill in this little area here.

The bud will be just a bunch of wiggly, here, little wiggly leaves like that, and it’ll have the greenery on top. We’ll see later. So that’s just a little bud that’s coming up. And we’ll have some more leaves, will just be overlapping and falling behind. This guy, let’s have him come over here, like so.

Maybe there’ll be one back here and kind of, yeah, I want them all to be overlapping and stuff, like that. This guy in the back doesn’t actually have any, so what are we gonna do there? I’m running out of room.  Maybe in there.

Knock Down The Opacity

Okay, let’s see how that goes when I do my better copy for my line work. So I’m just gonna take this and knock down the opacity to about 25%, create a new layer by hitting that plus sign, and then actually I’m gonna stick with my 6B pencil today for my line work.

I think that will work nicely for what we’re trying to do here, so just stay on that and I’m gonna stay at 45%. I think that was working just fine. So then I’m gonna go and just make some nicer line work. I’m gonna do these little details, so these little… Oops, I’m on the wrong way.

These little details, I am just gonna do a little scoop, a little scoop like that, and then they’re gonna have a circle like that. So that’s how the little centres of these guys go. And then I’m just gonna play with the pressure of my pen a little bit just to create these wiggly lines, and that will make a nice petally look.

So you can play with this. Again, I love nature because of it’s, you get not perfectly straight lines,  it can be wiggly and be a little bit interpretive which is always nice.

Okay, good, and then we’re gonna do this guy, so these two little bean shapes, a little smile. This guy is gonna come underneath this one. Like that. Okay, this guy lastly for this part like so… Just make them all lazy and do a little overlap here by drawing that line, it looks like it’s folding over.

You can make those little fun details if you want… Okay, let’s get this guy here, this is gonna be the leaf part over top of our bud, and then these will be… Oops these will be the petals here. Okay. And the stem. Okay. Great. And you just continue on and line your work, adding all the little touches that you want.

So actually with the leaves, I’m gonna do… I’m gonna do this, so on the middle, I’m gonna go, just do these little lines here for the veining, so I’m pushing a little bit more at the beginning and easing up as I lift my pen at the end.

Let’s See What We’ve Got

Okay. So I think that’s good. We can turn off our sketch layer here. So let’s see what we’ve got. Okay. That looks good for now. And then I’m gonna add a couple more line details to this.

So when we come in here, you can see this would be nice just to add a little line and then maybe… I hope you can see this. So if when it goes like this, you might see it behind. So that creates a more realistic effect of how they’d actually be in real life, not so flat. So I like adding those little details, too, when they come up and they’re just not really planned, they just happen as I do those little squiggly lines and stuff.

So just bring in these little bits where you can find them. So from the centre and also from the top. A few little ones more in the centre, sometimes, just to bring that in there. It looks good. Okay. I’ll just keep going. So there again, this little scoop, if you put that line there, it’ll look better, like it’s folding. There’s another one where you can make it look like that fold.

Okay so I think that’s pretty good for that part, I’ll start coloring it in. So I’m gonna just do some solid fills and go over with some painting techniques. So I’m just gonna go below my sketch layer and add new layer by hitting the plus sign. And let’s go find some new colours. And let’s start with the light pink colour and go into inking, and I’m gonna grab that studio pen.

I’m just gonna use that for my solid fill. I’m gonna turn off my background layer so you can see ’cause it’s quite a light colour. So let’s just go in and I’m going to just fill this in, just colour within the lines.

And then I’m just gonna drag my colour into there and fill that. Next, I’m gonna create a new layer. I’m gonna use this darker pink colour and fill in this one.

I think I’m gonna be dragging my colour in and fill, and then we’re gonna do another layer and grab this light yellow colour and fill in this one. Okay, and then I’m gonna just do this little guy too, I’ll make him yellow. Alright. And then lastly, we’ll just do our green, so create a new layer and get that light green colour and we’ll fill in all our greenery.

Solid Fills Done

Okay, so now we have all our solid fills done and we’re ready to do a little bit of painting and shadows and stuff like that. So I’m going to just create a new layer. Actually, I’m gonna… Yeah, I’m gonna do a new layer and I’m gonna use this dark orange colour and with this solid we still have our studio pen, I’m just gonna do these little bits here, all the way around.

And then I’m gonna grab that medium yellowy orangey colour and do the top two thingies. Okay, so then we have that done.

Great. Okay, and then I’m gonna do a clipping mask on a bunch of these guys. So first, I’m gonna go back to our pink and a new layer, hit the plus sign, hit that layer and say clipping mask, so that will mean that we can only draw within this shape, which will be nice, then we don’t have to do a bunch of clean up.

I’m gonna grab that medium pink colour, and then go to my painting. Where are you painting?  And grab my gouache, I’m just gonna use that for now. Let’s see, I’m going to be at about, let’s say 5% and just bring in some shadows here, so quite close to the beginning. I’m gonna make that a shadow and just have it so all the tips of the flowers are gonna be lighter.

And you can just have some lines up there if you want, just sort of get in these grooves. And you can build that up by just doing layers too, and just get under here, in all these little folds.

More Layers

Get in and come behind here. I’m creating that shadow there. Okay. So hopefully you can see that. That’s working. Okay. So then I’m gonna do the same thing to this darker layer here, so I’m gonna add new layer, hit clipping mask and grab… Oh, I didn’t do a darker colour, so I’m gonna make this for you, grab this darker colour, kind of a reddy-pink and do the same thing.

And if you make a mistake like I just did, you just get your eraser, take that out,  ’cause I like to have this, just to make sure that you’re creating that depth, having the dark behind and then the light tips of the flowers, I think that looks good.

Okay, and then same with the yellow one, create new layer, clipping mask, and then get that medium yellow, and we’ll do the same thing. And then we’re gonna come in here with this bud too. Okay, perfect. And then same thing with our green, so create new layer, clipping mask, grab that darker green and just start bringing in some shadows here.

Don’t Forget!

Oops, I forgot to fill one of those in. Okay, so I’m just gonna go and fix that, grab my green and drag and drop in there, there we go, fixed.

Grab the dark green again and just finish up with my shadows here. Okay, so we have a little bit of depth going on. I’m gonna turn my background layer back on, I prefer it that way. Okay, so now let’s just go and do the details for the… That make pansies actually look like pansies. So I’m just gonna continue on with my clipping or the layers that I did for my clipping mask.

You can make new ones if you want to by all means, that would be less destructive, but today, I’m just gonna do it over top, so we don’t have a ton of layers. So I’m gonna start with this medium yellowy colour, so I’m on my pink one, so on that clipping mask above it.

I’m gonna just go and make that… I don’t know, little face that they have just with the yellow, and I’m gonna be layering it. I’m gonna start with this. So here it kinda goes, it’s almost like a butterfly shape. I’m just gonna fill that in. Okay, and then I’m gonna go and grab this quite dark, eggplant purpley colour, and then go over top.

So I want to have an outline of the yellow, and this is gonna be quite dark. It’s kinda gonna have the edges a little painty but quite heavy in the centre.

So the same thing to the dark pink one, so I’m gonna just go to that clipping mask layer, grab that medium yellow, same thing. Grab that eggplant colour. Okay, and lastly on our yellow one. So the yellow part won’t show quite up as much, but we’ll still put it in here. Again, grab that eggplant. I don’t know why I’m calling it eggplant, it’s purple.  Whatever. Sounds fancy.

So It’s Looking all Right

Okay, at least they look like pansies, right? But I’m gonna make a few changes ’cause for this picture I don’t actually want my lines to be black. So what we can do, ’cause I didn’t feel like doing each line a different colour, we can just do this after the fact.

So this is a little thing that I do sometimes. Again, I’m gonna create a clipping mask on top of my lined layer and then yeah, hit clipping mask, and I’m gonna go in and just grab the colours that I want to make the outlines. So I’m gonna go back to my inking and grab that studio pen.

You can do this a number of ways, you can do this with studio pen or you could just to color it with a marker or anything like that, but I’m just gonna use studio pen today. I’m gonna grab this darker pink here, and I’m gonna make the lines this colour, so because it’s a clipping mask, I can just go over like that, and it’s gonna just make my lines pink, so I can just really do a swoop, do a circle, careful around here, and just make a circle around and then fill that circle in and then just that part is that pink colour.

So I like that better, that look better for this particular thing. So I’m gonna go and change everything here. So I’m gonna grab this darker one and then do the lines for this flower.

So I’m just going all the way around holding down my pen, making sure the line up again, and there we go, just a little bit more subtle. Grabbing this dark orange, going here.

Hopefully I got that in there. Yeah, got that. And then, don’t forget about this while we’re here. Little guy, and then I’m gonna go and grab this dark green and do the same to my greenery, and you can just do it in the sections, I’m just trying to make sure that I get it all covered here. And you can just go and color over top too.

You don’t have to do the drag and drop, it’s just a little bit quicker sometimes, but when you’re doing picky things like all these little details and it’s a little bit harder to get in, you might wanna do it all by hand. Okay. Let’s see if this works. Oops.

Looking A Lot Better!

Perfect. Okay, so that’s a better look, I think for this particular thing. And we can add another little touch here by going into the wrench. And I’m gonna give you a free watercolour paper texture that is in the downloads as well, so go and grab that if you want, just to add another little layer to it.

So I’m gonna go to my wrench and to add insert file. I’m gonna go into my Dropbox and go and find that. Wherever you downloaded yours will probably be on your iPad if you downloaded this watercolour texture. I’m gonna find that, import that, and I’m just gonna use the little toggles to expand it all the way out and make sure that it is at the top of our layer.

And then I’m gonna click the end and go to multiply, so that will give us a watercolour texture, which is a little bit nicer than just having it plain for this particular project.

So I think that’s it, guys. So I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial, and if you did, hit that like button, subscribe, and don’t forget to hit the bell icon so you can be notified of new tutorials, just like this one in the future. I post every single week, so I’d love to see you back here.

I love you guys, and I’ll see in the next one.

How to Draw Spring Flowers – Tulip Illustration – Step by Step Procreate Tutorial


Hi Guys, I’m Kris. Welcome to This Week’s Tutorial. Let’s Draw Together!


In this week’s tutorial, we’re drawing a vase with some spring tulips in it, all in Procreate, and I’m sure you can create this too if you follow along all the way to the end of the video. If you feel rushed, be sure to hit that pause button or just rewind to catch up and save this video to your library so you can re-watch if you need a little extra practice. Today we’ll be using all free brushes found in Procreate and don’t forget once you finish this entire video to share it on Instagram, tag me in the image, as well as the description, so I can find your artwork and feature you here in the next draw together video.

Check Out My Shop Of Cute Illustrations

For This Video, I’ve Made You a Free Colour Pallet

Just in case you’d like to use the exact same colors I’ll be using during this tutorial. And you can just tap on the link in the video description below where you can download it and install it to Procreate. And also below, you’ll find a link to a goody bag where you can grab some free goodies and visit my shop and support me there. So let’s jump in and just start out with our canvas, and I’m gonna set it up at the usual 4000 by 4000 pixels, 300 DPI, and sRGB. And I’m actually gonna start by going into my layers palette and going to the background colour and changing it just to a light blue grey. You can pick whatever colour you want, up to you. Just for a little variety, let’s change it up a little bit.

Remain On Layer One

So, I’m gonna remain on layer one and I’m gonna pick, I think I’m gonna start with the lightest yellow colour, and I’m gonna go and pick the studio pen. You can use a mono pen or just something that’s straight and solid that should work just fine. I’m going to have my opacity at 100% and my size is going to be around 20%, and I’m gonna go and make this so that we make our vase symmetrical. So how we’re gonna do this is go into our little wrench here, go to hit canvas, and then go to the drawing guide and turn that on, toggle that on, then go to edit drawing guide, click on that and you’ll see a few options here. So, we’re gonna go to the symmetry, little tab there, and the thickness is gonna be the thickness of this line in the center, just so we can see. Hopefully, you can see that there. And then we’re gonna click on the options and we want it to say vertical and assisted drawing will be toggled on.

Good To Go!

So once you have that set up, we’ll be good to go, we just click done and here we go. So you can see this layer says assisted on it, so this is the layer that it’s gonna allow us to draw symmetrical things. So I’m gonna start just with… I’m gonna zoom out a little bit, I’m gonna just start with a straight line first and I’m just gonna drag and hold, and then I’m just gonna tap to make that totally straight, and then I’m just gonna do whatever vase shape you want, up to you. And there we go. So now we have it symmetrical, hopefully you can see that, that’s my vase shape I’ll be working with. And then I’m just gonna go and drag and fill that, now we can really see it. So that’s just your vase, and now we have it symmetrical and we’re good to go, so we can just go and turn that assist to drawing off now if we want. And then I’m just gonna go back into my canvas, and I’m just gonna turn that drawing guide off, ’cause it’s kind of annoying to look at.

Click On A New Layer

So there we go, that’s all we needed for that part. And then I’m going to click on a new layer by hitting the plus sign, drag that layer to below this layer one. I’m gonna just go and pick, just grab a gray colour, any gray will do, and I’m just gonna make an oval below here. And I’m just gonna hold and wait till it goes kinda perfect, I wanna have a little bit lopsided and I’m gonna put my finger down just to make it straight. So that will be our little shadow layer, and I’m gonna drag in here to fill. It looks a little bit hard right now, so what I’m gonna do is go up here to your magic wand and go to Gaussian blur, hit layer and now all you need to do is just take your pen and drag it across. Can you see how it’s… I’ll zoom in. How it blurs a lot, so the more I drag, the more it blurs. So you can choose how much you’d like this blurred, I’m just gonna have it about, let’s see. A little bit more than that. Just about there, I think.

Let’s Blend!

And then I’m gonna go and click on this layer and I’m going to change, click on the end to change the blending mode, and I’m gonna put it to multiply. So no matter what colour behind it’s gonna react to that, whatever background colour we have, and then I’m just gonna bump down the opacity as something that looks somewhat reasonable. Maybe around 30%. I think that’s good. Okay, so now let’s work on our vase a little bit, I’m gonna click on that and then add a new layer, tap on it and hit clipping masks. So I’m just gonna do a little bit of shading just to give it a little bit of dimension. I’m gonna go and pick up that orangey colour, click on your brush, and we’re gonna go to, let’s go to air brush and just have that soft brush and it’s going to be at 100% and let’s start, let’s say 8%, that should be fine. So I’m just going to just give the edges just a really light little dusting here, maybe more so in the bottom a bit. A little bit on the side here. And then I’m gonna bring the brush up a little bit more maybe to about 25%. Just a little bit of a dust there.

Rounding It Out

So now we have a little bit more of a rounded shape. It’s a little bit much there, okay. And then I’m gonna go and grab that lighter yellow and I’m gonna add this to this as well, so I’m just making it lighter, even lighter yellow and still with the air brushing, I’m gonna bring it down back to about 8% again. Maybe let’s just give it a little bit of light on this side. Good, nice. So there we have our shaded vase, so we can decorate it and make it a little bit prettier, but at first I think we’ll put our flowers in and then we can kinda leave that to the end. So, I’m gonna select all three layers and hit my arrow and just move, move this down a little bit just so I have some more room, maybe I’m gonna shrink it just a hair, just so I have enough room for these flowers to come in, perfect. And then I’m going to select the shadow layer, hit the plus sign to create a new layer and bring that below, so all our layers will be below the vase so they go behind in it.

Draw Some Stems

So next, I’m gonna draw the stems of the tulips, so I’m just gonna grab this darker green here, then I’m just gonna stay on that studio pen for now. And let’s see what size… That’s still good. Okay, so we can stay on about 18% to draw these little stems and leaves and whatnot. So I’m gonna have one coming out about here, and then we’ll have one here. Maybe a little shorter guy over there. Let’s have some leaves here, like so. Have one coming out the front here. Okay, let’s see how that is. I’m gonna fill these leaves. Oops, I didn’t close that in. There we go. Perfect. Maybe we’ll have… Actually, so those ones are in front, so I’m gonna make another layer, drag it below, and these leaves will be behind, so that will help us later when we’re doing some shading and whatnot. So that one’s gonna be behind. And maybe we’ll have just another little guy in there go behind. Perfect.

A Couple Of Tweaks

Okay, so I think I’m just gonna go back to this layer and just tweak these a little bit, I want my stems to have a little bit more thickness, so I’m just gonna push down a little bit more. They need to be a little bit sturdier. Okay. That’s probably good. Great, and then we can go on top of this layer, I’m gonna click a new layer and make it a clipping mask. So, I’m gonna grab the light green, I’m gonna go and grab, let’s try the charcoals and maybe the… Let’s see, the willow charcoal, let’s try that. It’s gonna be at 100% opacity and 18%. Oh, that’s nice. Just to kind of lightly, just giving it a little bit of texture, just a little bit of something. Just play around with the sizes, it’s not crucial at this point, I’m at 8% right now. Give it a little something. Bring out that leaf there. Good, and then we can go into the same thing to layer five, these leaves that are behind, so I’m gonna click on that, add the plus sign, make it a clipping mask. And I’m actually going to use a darker green now. I will also add this to the palette for you, maybe let’s give it a little more depth in there.

Do The Tulip

Okay. We can use that darker green here too, just maybe give a little edges to that. Oh, I think that looks good. Okay, so now let’s do our little tulips, so I’m going to go and create a new layer on top of that, still below the shadow just to keep everything kind of organised and go back and grab our… Not our painting, our studio pen. So we’re still on… What were we on? 18%, and that’s fine. So let’s start with these tulips here. So I am gonna start with grabbing my colour would be good, so I’m gonna grab that hot pink and create the first little puddle here, it’s gonna kinda go like this, and then there’ll be one kind of like this. And I’m going to fill those in. And I know that’s not quite right, but those are the petals that are closest to us, and then we’re gonna do another layer kinda like how we did it for the leaves to make the ones behind, and that will just help speed up with some of our shadowing and whatnot. Okay, so this one is gonna go… Let’s have it more, a little bit more open here, like that.

Making Some Fixes

That’s not quite right.  Like that. Gonna come in. Okay. And now I already see that I will need to change this layer. I’m actually going to bring this behind the leaves. And you’ll see why in a sec, I forgot about this little guy here. So we want him to be behind for this part. And I’m gonna fix this little area here. Okay. Then I’m just gonna go to this layer that has the stems, grab my eraser and just fix that a bit. So that’s going in there a bit more. Perfect. Okay, so then I’m gonna go back to this layer, create a new one and bring it below and we can create a darker colour here, just to begin with, so we can see what we’re doing. And then we’re just gonna put the petals in here, like so. Now we can add a few more, I think. Okay, that’s good. And I’m just gonna do one more layer, you can have this even darker, just making it up as we go, and just a few more in the back here.

It’s Okay, It’s Alright

Okay, alright. So now we can add some more detail to the petal part. So I’m going to go to this layer, this sort of middle layer, and start there. And I’m just gonna add a new layer clipping mask, stay on this darker colour, I think that will do as well. And go and let’s stick with the charcoals, the willow is good, we’ll stay on the same size at about eight and just let’s make it a little darker in here, give it a little depth and sort of give it a little something in here, so I can just go around and do that. Okay. That looks good. Okay, and then same, I’m gonna go to the layer on top, add a new layer clipping mask, and get this lighter pink here, and let’s just give some life there. Alright. Okay, so then I’m going to just create a new layer and we’re gonna use just the white, and I’m gonna go back to inking and grab my favorite draw ink brush and let’s just do some extra little details, so I’m just gonna give a few little highlights here. I’m gonna have to fix these stems.

Flowers Need A Vase

Okay. I think that’s good for that. So why don’t we work on our vase a little bit and add something a little bit more interesting to it. Let’s go and go to the top and hit the plus sign. And grab this sort of beigey colour here, taupey-beigey. Let’s do some raffia. So we’re on our dry ink brush still, so that should be good, and let’s just kind of like, bring some lines around here, maybe I’m gonna make this a little bit bigger, actually, maybe about 16, and just sort of, you know, they’re all kind of a little bit messy, isn’t it? Have that stuff and kind of have a knot here, just messy sort of lines. And then, let’s see, it kinda has that…

Use Your Imagination

Okay. So that’s probably good. Just use your imagination with that, grab a little darker brown, and we’re just gonna give it a little bit of depth, so it makes sense, ’cause right now it kinda looks really like a big mush right now here. So just define some of those lines. So why don’t we make a little tag underneath our raffia tie here, so I’m gonna go into my layers and create a new layer and just pop it below that, and it does automatically go as a clipping mask. So just double check that, ’cause you won’t be able to draw outside of our vase here. So I wanna go and grab our studio pen again, leave it on the same settings, it’s fine at 18. And let’s just draw a tag. So you can have whatever shape you want. I’m just gonna make something, I don’t know, reminiscent of a luggage tag shape, I guess, something like that.

Write A Little Message

Okay, so now we can use that to write a little message on, but first, I’m going to make a little shadow. So I’m gonna actually duplicate this and my duplicate below, I’m just going to… I’m gonna give it this warm orange colour and you’re not gonna see anything happen, but you’ll see it below. But where we’re gonna move it just like so. Maybe down like that, and then we’re gonna go back to our magic wand. Go to Gaussian blur and layer, and again, just give this a blur like so. Mine’s at 15%, if that’s helpful. Now this, I am gonna make this a clipping mask, ’cause you see, I’ll show you, that it’s popping out here. So that’s not logical, so we’ll just clip that to the vase, so that’ll work. And now we have a nice little drop shadow below that. Okay, and we can move it over a little bit, it might be making more sense if it didn’t have too much on that side. That’s probably good.


Okay, so we can go back to our tag layer and make another one above it, and you can write a nice little message and I’m sure yours will be even prettier, because as we all know, I am not known for my hand lettering skills, so.  You can write whatever message you want. Happy Easter, Happy Spring. I’m just gonna say, “Thank you.” I’m gonna just do it with my dry ink at about 10, and I’m just, hopefully and neatly gonna say “Thank you.” You know, it’s just not my best skill.  Alright, something like that. I’m sure yours will look much better.  But we can decorate the tag, of course, then maybe we should do that, maybe we can just move this up a little bit. I can still read it and maybe you put a little… Grab the orange. Maybe that looks better, a little flourish or something. So you can decorate this however you want, of course, you can go in and maybe I’ll do this with this tag, you can go and take your eraser, and I’m just on air brush and a hard brush. So I’m going to bring it down to 2%. Let’s just see if we just cut little holes out of it.

And You’re Done

There we go. Makes it a little bit more interesting. Maybe I’ll move this up again, we’ll shrink it down, move it up. There, so we have a little cut-out tag, that’s kinda fun. So I think that’s it for today.

How to Draw a Wild Rose Illustration – Step by Step Procreate Tutorial


Welcome to this week’s tutorial!

Hi guys, I’m Kris! Welcome to this week’s tutorial. Let’s draw together. In this week’s tutorial, we’re drawing a wild rose in Procreate and I’m sure you can create this too if you follow along with the video all the way to the end. And if you feel rushed, just be sure to hit that pause button or just rewind to catch up and save this video to your library so you can have some extra practice. So today we’ll be using all three brushes found in Procreate, and don’t forget, once you’ve finished this entire video, share it on Instagram and tag me in the image as well as the description, so that I can find your artwork and feature you here in the next draw together video. So for this video, I’ve made you a free colour palette, just in case you wanna use these same colours. You don’t have to, you can use whatever you want, but that is in the description below; you can just tap on that and download it and install it into Procreate, and of course, below you’ll also find some links to free goodie bags and free good stuff that I’d love to give to you, and there’s also a link to the shop where you can find all of the Clip Art goodies and lots of other stuff.


So let’s dive in!

And create our canvas of 4000 x 4000 pixels, 300 DPI, and I’m gonna start with my 6B pencil, and I’m just gonna use this dark brown here. We’re just gonna do a sketch first, just kinda get the placement of all the petals and all that kind of good stuff first, so I’m just gonna start with a loose sort of circle, not a perfect circle, it’s just gonna be slightly on the side and just sort of get where my centre point is going to be, it doesn’t have to be that specific.  And then just start mapping out where I want my petals, so it’s gonna be something like this coming out from here, and another one coming out here. This one is gonna come out here, actually, I think the centre line is actually gonna be a little bit lower. So the centre of those flowers will be a bit lower, so it would be like this. This petal here… I mean, they’re flowers so it doesn’t have to be exact. You can interpret it however you want. There’s some rules, but not really.  You can be pretty loose with that.


Okay, so like this. And I don’t know something like that. Just gonna erase that. And then this guy is gonna come down here. I don’t know. I’m gonna have to wiggle here. And let’s see. Then you wanna have one that has a little bit of interest to it, so maybe we’ll see the underside of the kind of side of that one. And it’ll come around here. So, I’ve made some of them so they are overlapping, and some of them that you can kind of see in-between, just to give a little bit of interest to your picture. Just to give a little bit of interest to your flower and yeah, I think that should be good. So we have one, two, three, four, five petals, it’s kind of a standard thing. I think I want this a little bit shorter in here. And then, let’s just do some leaves and sort of the base. So I’m gonna bring my stem and it can just go, I don’t know, kind of like this. Maybe we’ll have another little bit of it over here. Something like that. There’s some leaves. So when it’s overlapping, that makes it look a little bit more interesting. Something like that. And that should be good. Okay, so let’s have a look at the centre here. I wanna make sure that it’s down low enough, I still think I’ve drawn it a little touch high here, just for the angle of this. ‘Cause there’s gonna be a little… What is it? A stamen that comes out here, so just give it a rough look like that. Maybe it looked just a little bit thick. Just a little bit thinner, there we go.


Like so, and then we’re gonna have all our little bits like this. Okay, so we know that. Just right now, I’m just trying to get the direction; it doesn’t have to, obviously, not too detailed, but just kinda try to get how these leaves are gonna lay. So I’m gonna know that this goes, I kinda want it to be scooping in a little bit more here, to shout a bit. Okay. And I don’t really like the way this line looks. Okay, so I think that’s probably pretty good for a start. We can always just take our liquify tool, if you go to your magic wand and go to liquify, go to push and you can just move things around if you want to, if you’re not really happy with the shape. If a petal has gone out too far or something like that, this is a good time to go and just make those little adjustments and stuff, so don’t be afraid to use that, it’s one of my favourite little tools, especially when I’m sketching. Okay, well, I could be fiddling with this for a while, but let’s get to our good copy. So I’m gonna go to our layers and click on the N and just bring down that opacity to about 20-25%, whatever works for you, and then click that plus sign so that we get a new layer and I’m gonna do my good copy on top of that.


So I’m gonna stick with my 6B pencil, I’m gonna be at about 75% and 100% opacity. And let’s just get in there and do some nicer line work. I’m gonna do a few of these little circly guys, just off the top here, before I set the lines in here, and I’m just gonna make that like that and maybe if we feel kind of bumpy like that… Okay. And then just with the pressure of your pen, just give it a little bit more pressure in areas, a little bit less, just to have some variety.




Just have those edges a little bit… Just you don’t want them exact.


Okay. I like drawing flowers, you can be so, just kind of more loose and, yeah, just a little bit more left to interpretation.  It’s kinda nice. Okay. So, let’s just keep going. I’m gonna do these little leaves here. Maybe we’ll have one coming out here, too.


Just having a little shaky hand is not a bad thing.  Keep doing the lines, just to give it that textured effect.


Maybe we’d have one over here, too. Something like that. Okay. I don’t think we need our sketch layer anymore. It’s kind of distracting me now, so I’m just gonna go into my layers and turn it off and let’s see. Okay, so that’s better. I think that’s a really decent start just to our line work. So now I’m gonna make some… Actually, I’m gonna do all the little circly things. So maybe we’ll just fast forward a little bit ’cause you can kinda get the idea pretty quickly, so let’s go. So all they’re going to be is just some circles and then you’re just gonna attach lines to them.


Okay, so that’s probably good for those little bits, and while we’re here, I’m just gonna try to make it sort of darker in the centre, just kind of making a little bit more attention to here. So I’m just gonna darken some of my lines. I’m gonna use the side of my pencil, just to give a little bit of shading too. It’ll give that nice little shadow effect. And just sort of put some darker lines, just coming out from the centre, just really making this more of a focal point.


Okay. So that should be fine, and then, I’m gonna go around the edges and just make a few little lines down. So when you have little things like this little jogs, you can kind of emphasize those just by pushing a little bit harder at the beginning and then swooping down, and that just creates that kind of fold look. So have a few of those from the top. That makes that… I don’t know. Well, petaly sort of wiggly look, I think it helps.


Okay, and then, from the base, I’m gonna leave a blank spot in between this and this. So I’m just gonna start halfway down, kind of, and bring that in there, just randomly, but make sure that they go with the flow of the petal. And you can do this and then you can do the little dots if you want to. You can do it like that. It has a nice of effect, too. This just really helps to show the direction of those petals, how they’re bending. Okay. So that’s pretty good. Let’s just go and do a few more details onto our leaves here. I’m just gonna… Because I… I don’t know why,  I’m gonna turn my canvas upside down, just ’cause it’s easier for me to do these lines this way. So I’m just gonna start from the base and do these little veins out.


Okay, and I’m just gonna take the side of my pencil and just give a little shadow here and there, just where it would naturally be shadowed. I just like having a little bit more graininess for this particular one.  If you’re doing straight water colour, then you wouldn’t do this. It wouldn’t really matter, but you can make it how you want it to look. Okay. Alright, so that’s pretty good. We could leave it at that if you just wanted to do an illustration, but let’s just put a little bit of a paint in there. I am gonna use some clipping masks ’cause if I was using this for Clip Art, this is how I would do it. I’m just gonna go and select my sketch layer at the plus sign. Go to… Let’s just pick the green at the moment. Go to our brushes and inking, gonna grab the studio pen. I just like to fill this in solid then it adds a solid background to it. So I’m just gonna do that right now, and then I’m gonna make it look more painterly later. So basically all I’m doing is just filling it in, just colouring in the lines, basically. And you can just either choose to colour it in like this, which isn’t the greatest with the studio pen, or you can just drag it in to fill it just like this. Here I’ll show you. So if you have a completed shape, then you can grab your colour and fill it in. So you can do that as well.


Okay. That’s all the green. I’m actually going to turn it white now. And I know sometimes people get confused why I do this, but I’ll show you in a second. I’m just gonna make this all white. I’m gonna turn off my background layer ’cause then you can see. So basically, all I’ve done is just fill it in with a colour. I use the colour just because I can see it,  when I have a white background on or I could just turn the background off and use white, which I’ll do right now for the flowers so you can see that difference. But yeah, it’s just so I now have a solid fill. So if I’m going to be using this as like I said, Clip Art, it’ll have a transparent background. But I don’t want any colours to fill in, so just… They always need to be solid, so. I hope that makes sense. Around it would be transparent, the actual image would be solid.  So I’m just gonna make sure everything’s filled in and then I can use clipping masks to do my painting on. That way I don’t have to do any erasing around the edges. If you’re just working on a canvas and you’re just making a painting, and it’s just gonna always be on a solid background, then you don’t need to worry about this, but because I make Clip Art, this step is how I find it easiest to do.


Hopefully that’s all filled in. Okay, great, so now we have our two parts filled in. So I can… I did it in two parts, just so it’s easier for me because then I can just colour the green parts without worrying about getting the flower all messy. So I’m gonna go back to my stems and just select that, hit the plus sign, and then do click on the layer, and click on clipping mask, grab the green, the darker green colour to start, and you can use whatever water colour brushes you have or we can… For today we’re just gonna use all the free stuff in Procreate. I’m actually just gonna use the gouache. That’ll work fine for us for this part too. So I’m just gonna bump up my gouache to about, I don’t know, 25% and just start painting.


So I kinda want it to look a little bit painted. So I’m gonna pick it up and make it so it’s a little bit more blottier here and there. That’s gonna be darker in here, of course. We can make some shadows. We can bring it down smaller, that small. About 10%, and just kind of bring it in there. Just colour it however you want it to appear. And I’m gonna go grab that lighter green. Maybe just bring in some interest here. You can set that here and there. Okay, great. So that was pretty simple. And then I’m gonna go and let’s colour in our flower here.  I can’t think. Let’s go in and colour in our flower, and I’m just gonna select that layer and hit the plus sign. Click on that. Hit clipping mask, and then I’m gonna grab this sort of peachy colour. I’m just gonna stay with the gouache and I’m gonna stay at about 8%. Let me just put in a few lines here.


Alright. I’m just gonna erase it just from the stamen here. And then I’m gonna go grab the pink and just maybe bump this up a little bit more to, what is that, 30%? And just sort of create a little circle, kind of, or just loose… I’m being really light at the edges. So I’m kind of building it up darker in the centre, lighter on the outside. I don’t want it to be too exact on each petal. I wonder if we need a little bit of brighter pink? Let’s try this. I’ll have to add this colour. Yeah, that’s looking a little dull. Okay, and then let’s just erase a little bit here. Okay. So now we can go and grab our yellow and I’m gonna… Yeah, the gouache is fine, just bring it down, way down to 5% or something like that, and then just colour this guy in nice and solid. Okay. And then I’m going to use this new pink we have and go and grab the… Go back to sketching and grab the 6B again. I’m just gonna fill in these, all these little dots. Oops, that’s not part of our thing there.


I think this may need to be darker. Let’s put that there. Okay and then I’m going to go… Just ’cause this doesn’t… There we go. And then I’m gonna just do a little extra touch. At the very top, I’m just gonna click select my top layer and then just add another one to the top, just make it white and just… I’m just gonna add a few little dots just for highlight, just to really make these come out a little bit. Just a dot. And then maybe just a little… A few here too. Good. Alright, perfect. Now, to have another touch, because this is still very flat, which is… Totally works for some applications, depending on what you’re wanting to do. But I’m gonna go into my wrench and into insert file. I’ve put in the description below, there’s a free water colour texture that you can download. And so mine is just in my downloads folder. So I just navigate to there and click on that and it will import it.


And I’m just going to make it the size of my canvas. Oops. And then do that. And then I wanna hit the N and make it or set it to multiply. So then we have a little bit more texture, which is nice. So you can just go back into your line work layer, and if there’s anything else you kinda need to add to and just maybe bump this up a little bit more. You just gotta make sure that your lines are interesting or they need to be… They don’t all need to be the same thickness. I like having variation in that. I think that helps just make it a little bit more of an interesting piece. So I think that’s it for today, guys.

I post one here every week so I’d love to see you back here. So thank you so much for watching. Love you guys, and I’ll see you in the next one.

5 Exceptional Peony Watercolor PNG Images For Download

Watercolor Peonies

You may be looking for peony watercolor images to use to make wedding invitations, seamless patterns, wall art, borders, bouquets, fabric, this, that or the next thing!  Now you may have been thinking about taking a course online to learn how to paint watercolor peonies but that isn’t going to solve your problem right now!

What we have done for you here is picked out 5 examples of exceptional peony watercolor paintings that you can download to use in your project.  These peony watercolor images are all hand painted by Kris Lauren and available in PNG format.   In addition, each watercolor peony flower is part of a larger collection of watercolor flowers.  So how that benefits you is that you get a lot more individual elements to create new compositions for your project rather than just one peony flower.

Let’s take a closer look at the 5 individual watercolor peonies and then we’ll talk a bit about the larger packages that they are a part of.

Peony Watercolor PNG

peony watercolor

Peony 1

Peony 1 is a lovely example of a hand painted watercolor flower using bold pink tones.  The bold tones really make this peony leap off the screen and will surely be even more eye catching in your finished project.  Painted with the light shining right to left, the shadows add a depth of color and realism to this watercolor peony that is truly striking.

peony watercolor

Peony 2

Peony 2 gives more of an overhead view of a peony flower.  This beautiful watercolor is painted using more soft pink tones with the light source directly overhead.  The level of detail and depth to this peony will cause your customers to “ooh and awe” over it.  Combining Peony 1 and 2 in a composition would give a wonderful contrast of bold and soft colors that would be very pleasing to the eye!

watercolor peony

Peony 3

While most watercolor peony paintings you will see focus on the fully bloomed peony as the subject matter, Peony 3 offers something different by focusing on the peony bud as its inspiration.  This image is a perfect complimentary image to peonies 1 and 2.  When used in a composition with the other peony images it makes the final image more interesting and complex by offering an interpretation of a peony flower in a different stage of its growth cycle.

peony watercolor

Peony 4

Employing more of a blush or muted pink color palette, this example of a watercolor peony is perfect if you are going for more of a soft and whimsical vibe in your project.  Again, despite the softer hues, there is still a depth and vibrancy to the flower that your customers will appreciate.

peony watercolor

Peony 5

Peony 5 is from the same family of watercolor images as Peony 4 and thus employs the same soft pink hues to achieve this exquisite watercolor peony.  Presented at a different angle gives a different perspective to the flower.  When peony 4 and 5 are combined in a composition a truly life like floral arrangement is created that will separate your product from the rest.

Bonus Peony 6

Like peony 3, this watercolor offering is of a peony not yet in full bloom.  Using creamy pink and white colors, peony 6 will contrast nicely both in color and composition when used together with the other peony images.  When combined together one can create beautiful and whimsical floral arrangements, bouquets, borders and more.

The Collections

All of the watercolor peonies presented here are part of bigger packages that you can be purchased for personal or commercial use.  Let’s quickly take a look at the two collections these peony watercolor paintings are from.

Allegra Watercolor Collection

The Allegra Watercolor Clipart Collection is an assortment of floral frames, bouquets, wreaths and individual floral elements.  All files are in PNG format so you can easily use them in your project and the collection employs hot pink and deep violet colors along with metallic accents.  In addition to watercolor peonies you will also find anemones, gerberas and dahlias, to name a few, in the collection so you can really make some stunning compositions that your customers will love.

Peonies 1, 2, and 3 are from this collection.

See this watercolor flower collection.

Pretty in Pink Watercolor Collection

If, in addition to watercolor peonies, you also love watercolor roses than you will love the Pretty in Pink Collection!  The soft pinks and rose gold colors used in this collection are perfect if you want your project to have a very feminine feel to it.  Like the Allegra collection there are bouquets, sprays, frames, borders and individual floral elements for you to create stunning compositions for your project.

Peonies 4, 5, and 6 can be found in this collection.

See the pink rose png images in Pretty in Pink.


There you have it!  We hope these beautiful watercolor peonies will be just what your project needs.  If you want to check out more of Kris Lauren’s artwork you can see her many other watercolor flowers.

Cheap and Stunning Watercolor Florals For DIY Wedding Invitations

Cause saving money on the invitations means more money for the honeymoon! (at least that’s what he said…)


Hello Lovely Lady!

Hope you are doing well today!  If you are here because you are planning for your upcoming wedding then may we say a very heartfelt congratulations to you!  And if you are here because you are looking for watercolor florals to make your own wedding invitations to sell then a heartfelt congratulations to you too!

Hey, life is hard enough as it is.  We all deserve a congratulations once in a while just for being here!

Now the wedding invitation is extremely important especially for the bride.  For the groom…well he might have suggested saving money on the invites by just sending out an email.  (Sadly, we may be speaking from personal experience on this one!) ;-).  Don’t worry you will get him whipped into shape in time!

Anyways, so as a compromise, you got him to agree to let you make the invitations yourself as a cost saving measure because an email is just tacky – and EHEM, you have personal standards!  So, he is going to get what he wants and you are going to get what you want.  Really, it’s all about getting him to think he’s getting what he wants when it’s actually really you getting what you want.  Are we right ladies?

And what you want is stunning and elegant watercolor florals.

Why?  The reason you need fabulous watercolor flowers is so that when people ask where you bought your wedding invitations from you will get the satisfaction of seeing the look on their face when you say, “Oh, they’re nothing fancy. I made them myself, darling”. 😉

Okay now that we have got that out of the way let’s get right to the good stuff and show you some stunning watercolor florals that you will fall in love with for your wedding invitations.

You have probably been scouring the internet for watercolor floral art looking at wedding invitations and trying to figure out where to find the watercolor art you will need.  We’ve all been there and it is frustrating but let us give you a solution.

Use watercolor flower clipart made by Kris Lauren to make your wedding invitations the talk of the town.  Let’s highlight some of the watercolor flower collections that are our personal favorites or if you want head on over to the shop and see them all for yourself.

Pink Watercolor Flowers

Pretty in Pink Watercolor Collection

Pink is is always a popular color for weddings.  If pink is your color than Pretty in Pink will have the watercolor flowers that you are looking for.  The soft pinks and rose golds used for these hand painted flowers are just as adorable as they are elegant.

The premade floral bouquets, borders and sprays will make creating your invitation a breeze.  There are also premade invitation templates included in the collection if you want to make things really easy on yourself!

As you can see from the image the watercolor flowers in Pretty in Pink are gorgeous but there is so much more you can see here.

Just a quick aside…

For you first time DIY’ers, you want to make sure you purchase the watercolor florals that you are going to use with the correct license.  Yes, having a license is very important!  For those of you that are just making wedding invitations for your own personal wedding and purchasing from Pretty Little Lines than the standard license should suffice.

The standard license covers you for personal or commercial use up to 500 sales.  The extended license covers you for over 500 sales.  We suggest that you read over the license so you know what you can and cannot do with the art.  If there is any confusions simply contact us with your question and we’ll be happy to help you out.

Who knows you might do such a good job on making your own personal wedding invitations that you decide to go into business for yourself!

So here today we have another awesome video of Kris Lauren painting anemone watercolor flowers for The Stunning Wedding and Celebration Creator.  This is part 2 in a series of videos where Kris gives a behind the scenes look at how many of the illustrations were made that you will find in the creator.

If you haven’t seen the first video then go check out Painting Watercolor Magnolias.

Once again, Kris does a stunning job of showing us how she paints these amazing watercolor flowers.  She has graciously, sped up the video, so you can see what would usually take hours to accomplish in a matter of minutes.  Thank you!

This time she has included in the video what the finished flower would look like in a composition by giving us a sneak peek at one of the things you can make in the Stunning Wedding and Celebration Creator.

Watercolor Anemones

Hey guys and welcome back!  We are now into the second video of the making of the watercolor flowers that are found in the Stunning Wedding & Celebration Creator.

We are on to the anemones!

Amenomies…anemonemoies…anemones…so fun to say!  So there are five in this series and this is the first one.  As always I sketch them out first and then transfer them to watercolor paper, scan it to my computer and then off over to my Ipad Pro where I delete the background in Procreate.

And then I have a lovely, clean PNG file for digital use!  Sit back and I hope you enjoy watching me paint ong>watercolor anemone flowers!
