I am really fortunate to be one of the artists that Microsoft has asked to create art with the app Fresh Paint on the Surface. The different types of paint effects you can work with are amazing. The water colors bleed like real water colors and the oils blend so nicely. There are also variuos surfaces you can work on, including a paper and canvas textures. With these two pictures I am experimenting with taking pictures of a still life with the Surface and using the app to convert the picture to “wet paint”. I am using the oil brushes, oil pastels and blender to create a more painterly effect.
It’s great to get out of your comfort zone and try a new app to spark your creativity. I’m really excited about trying out all of the different “brushes” and colors in this app!
