Dripping Down

I’m so excited, I can hardly stand it!

Since last summer, I have tried to get Painter to make drips.  Just little drips.  Nothing complex.  But drip, it would not.

A group called Escape Motions is in the process of releasing a new digital painting app called Rebelle.  Escape Motions is a group of artists who make digital art apps.  This new product, Rebelle, is out of this world.

It is a watercolor application.  It does watercolors just like in the real world.  It is totally amazing.  Then it also has an ink pen that paints, drips and is also, amazing.  In addition, the app will do acrylics, pastels, markers and pencil.  There is a tool that lets one add water, and then watch things run in drips!

Right now, it is in beta.  But it’s a very good beta.  I purchased the program for about $40.00.  This was a pre-release special.  It will sell for $59.99 when it is released. If you haven’t tried this product, I highly recommend it.  Even in beta, it works great.

I won’t compare it with Painter.  That would be very hard.  Painter is a huge application and does so many things.  What I notice is that Rebelle feels light and free.  That’s how I feel when I’m painting on it.

So, this is one of my first paintings done entirely on Rebelle.  I took it into Painter to sign it and do some technical end things like adding equalize.  Equalize is a tool in Painter that I use at the end of my paintings.  It intensifies the highlights and darks.  This is a very handy tool.

I had so much fun painting this.  I hope you enjoy it.

    I love those drips! I am trying to do realistic dripping effect with Painter and find it very difficult. Thanks for sharing your discovery and your colorful art.

      Thanks for your comment, Louise. I’ve been going crazy since last summer trying to get Painter to do drips like these. There just is no way. You will love Rebelle. Look for it at Escape Motions.

      Thanks for stopping by, Kimberley. I love Rebelle. I’ve been starting all my abstracts in it for the drips. The only problem with it, is that with a large painting, like 16″ x 16″ at 300 dpi, it slows. But Painter’s watercolors would completely choke at that size also.

    It’s a lovely effect. It looks like melting snow 🙂

      Hi Peggy. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look around. I did Hot Cha Cha in Maui and named it after an Hawaiian song from the 30’s by a Hawaiian woman.
