Paint a Geode in Procreate

Pretty rocks have long held a fascination for me. I share my home with an unnamed number of stones – big and small! They have been lovingly selected over the years and placed on special shelves and in places of prominence, where their mystery and deep quiet beauty can be seen and felt.

Do you know what it’s like to be inexplicably drawn to something? Some rocks just “feel right!” Geodes in particular are otherworldly in their beauty. I love the symbolism and hypnotizing complexity of the many layers.

Today, we’ll be painting/creating a geode shape on a dark background in Procreate. We’ll be using glitter, foil, sparkles, and alcohol ink with lots of squiggles and texture in a circular design.

Made using iPad Pro 2020 in the Procreate app with Apple Pencil, using brushes from my Amazing Alcohol Ink and Gold Rush brush sets. You are very welcome to follow the tutorial with any textured brushes you have.
