31 Oil Paint

Learn to paint with the Oil Paint brush in Procreate. Using a familiar figure, we’ll learn how to create a simple oil painted figure, while learning some of the tricks with layers and blending you need to know to paint in Oil.


The challenge is to Paint a figure from a geometric line drawing with the oil or turpentine brushes. Here’s six line drawings, including the one from the lesson, for you to choose from. Save the image to you photos and import to Procreate from there. Remember to use Multiply on your line drawing layer. Find other images on the internet or make your own for a bigger challenge.
