Fresh Paint

Hey, friends! So my sister just got a cool new computer- a Dell Inspiron 13. It has a touch screen and it folds all the way back to become a tablet. My sister downloaded an app called Fresh Paint, which is an art app. She likes navigating around the interwebs with a pink Bamboo stylus that her super awesome older sister got her.

So tonight my sister volunteered to play a farming-type game on my phone for me. That worked out fine for me; that game can go suck someone else's life away for a while. But while she was doing that, she let me try out her laptop, and I doodled around with the Fresh Paint app.

It seems pretty cool. I've never used an art program that let me draw right on the screen with a stylus before. My Bamboo tablet doesn't have its own screen, so this was a bit of a new experience. Fresh Paint has a nice little variety of tools. I haven't had a chance to test out all the tools yet, but it seems like a great program for making really great casual art. I would have to ask a better artist about using it for serious art projects. I really liked the watercolor tools, though- they look and act like digital watercolor brushes should.

Here's a little doodle I did! My sister has this "Cardio Queen" tank top that really makes me laugh, so I drew it.
