Nest(ing) Tip // Waterlogue Watercolor App
I usually try to accentuate my strengths. For instance, I make a mean strawberry pie, I can turn an excellent cartwheel and I'm a skilled wine drinker.
But I can admit, I may have some weaknesses. For one, I am horrible at painting. Really horrible. Like two defiant teenagers, my hands will just not listen to what my brain is telling them to do. They give me a shrug and a "mmm hmmm" and then go ahead and draw a squiggly line instead of a straight, or a really short horse instead of a dog.
My dad was a great artist. He could sketch and paint with watercolors, he could also carry a tune and whistle like a whippoorwill. None of those skills did he pass on to me.
The Waterlogue app has changed all that! Well, I still can't carry a tune or whistle all that well, but I CAN paint a pretty great watercolor painting. For $2.99 - I know, pretty steep but I think it's worth it ;-) - you can take any picture and turn it into a watercolor.
With all the options available to play with, you can turn even a mediocre picture of moss and wood chips into a realistic painting or abstract art.
As good as my Dad's? Nope. But, a masterpiece for those of us who have temperamental hands!
Now I can focus my efforts on learning to whistle. Hopefully my lips are more cooperative...
