Stupid Easy Watercolors You'll Actually Use

Illustrator User? You're Going to Love This

I've always loved the way commercial artists from the mid-century used watercolor.

Mix water, add a dab of India ink and soak the brush. Then spread deep, textured shades across your sketches and pen work in one quick swoop.

The only problem is until now watercolor sets have been too complicated and just plain crazy. 

Personally, I love to make things stupid simple whenever possible.

That's why we created InkWash. It's a set of 30 watercolor brushes made by hand in the RetroSupply studios with India ink and water.

You don't need to upload any swatches, or read a 2000 word manual to use these brushes.

Here's exactly what you get when you buy the InkWash now:

  • 30 ready-to-use vector ink and water art brushes
  • A display sheet with brush samples, instructions, special tips, back story and more
  • Versions for CC, CS6, CS5, and CS4
  • A diverse set of brushes made and inspired by mid-century commercial watercolor work.
  • When we made this set, we wanted to make it as brain-dead simple as possible.

But don't be deceived. You can still add colors to these brushes and mix them up just like real watercolors.

Just click on a brush, select a color and you're good to go.

I've shared this set with a handful of my designer friends. They've all told me almost the same thing:

They had to buy 3-4 kits to get as many useful brushes as they found in this kit. And those other kits were more complicated to use!

Grab this pack now for just $19. That way you have them when you need them (instead of searching all over or hoping this one is still available).

    Great Brushes for Adobe Illustrator

    If you re looking for a more painterly look but dont want to use Photoshop, then look no further. I purchased 3 brush packs and my designs look great, you would never know they was created in illustrator

    Fine, not really sure how to use light wash

    The shape variety of these are ok, but using light wash versions are confusing as they’re not the color you choose..idk I can’t see myself using these too much and a little bummed I bought them. I like some other texture brushes I bought from you guys but they’re pattern brushes and not artistic brushes.

    You should just do this the old fashioned way - with brush and ink.

    The monotone washes are fine. Any brush with faux brush strokes or graduated tones really falls short. Ink washed images are more shaped puddles of ink layered over each other than actual brush strokes anyway. Not really for creating inked drawings, but good for a few quick simple effects.
