What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial I will introduce you to watercolour paints. Watercolours are very transportable, and can be used in the comfort of your own home (and easily cleared away) or in front of your favourite view. Why Watercolour? Watercolour paintings are instantly recognisable and have a glow and vividness that no other medium can match. You will end up with paintings that express dark and light as only watercolour can.

What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial you will learn how to create four types of donuts in Adobe Illustrator. We’ll start with the base, which is a classic plain donut, and then we’ll use this one to create the four variations: chocolate sprinkles, icing with chocolate chips, plain sugar, and strawberry frosted. The great news is that we will also use the same Scatter Brush to create all the decorations on the donuts. Let’s get started while they’re fresh! 1. Start a New Project
