I am stunned by this app. I am a trained artist; and after only using this app for a few minutes, I am amazed by its utility for my work. I will be able to make small sketches, in color, on trips; to draw out preliminary ideas in color without having to go to my studio and having to use paints, oil pastels and/or watercolors. This is the first such app for real artists that I've found, i.e., with the ability to mix colors on a palette, to use a large variety of hues, to choose the media and the tools you want to use, to have a blank surface on which to create and not a coloring book, etc. I enjoy using this app both for amusement and for my work. My thanks to the creator.
I have lots of the top art apps, and I can say this one is pretty impressive. Really like how the tip of the brush changes color as you mix the paint and doesn't revert back unless you pick the original color again. Would really like layers though. :)
Want to give this a five. But....
Please allow me to import sketches. This is a great app. It needs that one function. Overall I recommend it.
