Brushes In Action, Review, WarmUps

Wednesday WarmUp Review


For the past few months, this blog has hosted “Wednesday Warm Up,”— a day of usually quick drawing, inking, brushing as warm up to our serious art. I share a strategy to try each Wednesday using the iPad app ProCreate. I only use the native brushes in the app and often include the strategies with using them.


Today’s goal is to review what’s been shared– a look back to see the ideas and the progress. I do hope these have been as helpful to you as they have been for me. The video below is a rough rambling of the warm up categories so you can choose to try a few or add ideas in the comments.
