In my toolbox I’ve now included a nice free editor, and a very useful blending tool. Today I’ll throw in a watercolor artist. If you also want to carry one around with you, get Waterlogue. I know a number of painters who have seen what you can create with this app and they are really impressed (although they wonder if their days are numbered).
Waterlogue is currently $2.99, but I consider that nothing when I look at the hundreds of images I’ve created with it. I like them all and would say I have a dozen that I truly love.
Painters may be worried about the gorgeous output, but if I could paint – I would paint. No matter what I make digitally I’m still jealous of those that can make it by hand.
The praise for the app sums it up.
