Using iColorama for Thick Paint Effects

Today, we’re going to do something new – moving away from Procreate for the time being to explore a few of the filters available in a different app called iColorama. I am not affiliated with this app, but it’s something that I’ve noticed many members of our community experimenting with.  One of the main appeals of iColorama is the ability to add texture and dimension in the form of filters on top of a completed work of art, because this is very limited in Procreate.  I created my Painterly brushes to imitate the Impasto style of painting as much as possible within Procreate, and I’m really pleased with they way they turned out! However, the ability to add a raised texture which is not available in Procreate is a lot of fun and makes the art piece look even more realistic.  Join me as I revisit two completed paintings that I created with my Painterly brush set, to give them a raised, three-dimensional aesthetic.

I would love to see what you come up with! You’re very welcome to tag me on Instagram @alainajensen, use #alainajensenbrushes or share your work in our free facebook group
