Putting words to paper – or virtual paper as the case may be – has always come easier to me than bringing out the visual artist within. You know, drawing, painting, anything crafty. But I have those visions. I want to put paint to paper and bring all the pretty colors to life.
Then came Watercolour…
I love the Watercolours book for iPad. It breaks down each step. Shows you how to make a petal for a flower, then add the leaves. The layered pages give you at your fingertips what PBS gave you with Bob Ross – only you can stop and start and stop and start as often as you need, easily.
This book includes seven fascinating lessons in watercolour painting with interactive elements and video inserts:
1. Basic brushstrokes
2. Feather brushstroke
3. Roses and buds
5. Deciduous trees
6. Coniferous trees
7. Marine (seascape)
And the illustrations are amazing.
You know you want to be able to paint a happy little tree, too.
The videos really make this book a complete painting experience. It’s more than just a how-to; it’s a classroom in the palm of your hand.
Check out Watercolour for iPad on Facebook, too.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
