WATERCOLOR BRUSH LETTERING + Adding dimension with colored pencils

A few days ago I created a lettering piece using my iPad Pro and shared it on Instagram. I loved how the quote turned out so much that I wanted to recreate by hand using watercolors and colored pencils.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

Since I already had the main design figured out, I printed out a black and white copy of the original Instagram post and used a light pad to aid me while tracing the letters with watercolor and a water brush. I used Ultra Blue liquid watercolor from Dr. Ph. Martin’s for the initial brush lettering. Then I went over it with colored pencils to add dimension.

I hope you enjoy today’s video! Thanks for stopping by. :)
