Here's What You Will Learn Inside Drawing Nature 101 Online Course
Chapter 1 Preview Sample
In Drawing Nature 101, you’ll be drawing object from A-Z that exist in the natural world. These will be distributed in 9 chapters- with each chapter containing 3 different types of objects or landscapes within it.
Everything that is drawn in the tutorial is on the Procreate app, but for most of the chapters, there will be an explanation of different techniques you can use for a variety of mediums such as oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastel. Each medium has a slightly different flow and texture, but the takeaways from each tutorial will remain applicable for a variety of techniques.
These tutorials will be done in full color, with an emphasis on blocking in highlights, midtones, and shadows, as well as blending techniques. You’ll discover how to start a painting, and which sections to prioritize before others. For example, during the Jungle tutorial, you’ll begin with the background, and use a technique known as atmospheric perspective to make the trees in the background lighter than the trees in the foreground. It sounds fancy, but the application is quite simple!
You’ll also learn how to draw standalone objects, such as trees, nests, and flowers. The Procreate brush known as Leatherwood is the main brush used for most of these sections, but any acrylic or watercolor brush will work just as well with a traditional media.
We’ll also cover techniques for creating glowing objects, which will be especially useful for Fire, Lightning, Stars, and the Universe. In Procreate specifically, there are brushes that make glowing objects appear quickly, but colored pencil or paint requires a more delicate touch, and careful blending, which we’ll talk about consistently as well.
By the conclusion of this tutorial, you’ll have an in-depth understanding of how to create atmosphere, basic plant shapes, sand dunes, clouds, mountains, and so much more. We look forward to you joining us on this journey!
