Yesterday, I accidentally discovered a new digital painting program and bought it spontaneously. It’s called Realistic Paint Studio and it has the most beautiful user interface I’ve ever seen in a program. The tools have been developed to mimic traditional painting and drawing techniques digitally, and the app does this very well. It is all still figuring out where what is and how it works exactly, but I find it much more intuitive to use than Corel Painter, for example.

I first tested the oil / acrylic painting tools with an autumn landscape and was really positively surprised how beautifully realistic not only the result is, but also the process of painting! I recorded the painting process, see below.

What do you think of my first try?
