Back when I had a house with an office, it doubled as my studio. I had an easel, canvas, and drawers full of every art supply and paper imaginable. I could paint, ink, stamp, draw, and splatter to my heart’s content.
When we moved into an RV to realize our dream of living in Arizona, I had to leave my studio (and part of my heart) behind.
Since I gave up my studio space, the Procreate app on my iPad has stepped into scratch my creative itch. With the Apple Pencil, it’s amazingly like actually painting with paint or drawing with a pencil.
The iPad’s compact size makes it ideal for my limited space. And I’m no longer concerned about using up expensive paint or screwing up expensive paper. If I make a mistake in Procreate, I swish three fingers across the screen and everything gets erased.
Today I’d like to share the courses of four Skillshare teachers who helped me learn how to use Procreate for iPad. And inspired me to keep creating despite my lack of studio space.
