This is a painting that I did in a computer app called Rebelle. It is a watercolor app that looks just like real watercolors and acts just like real watercolors. It also has inks, acrylics, markers, pastels and pencils.
Artistically, I’ve been in a real funk for about eight or nine months. I’ve been quite ill all that time and I guess it just took my art abilities away from me. It’s been really frustrating and frightening and depressing.
However, I’m finally feeling better. Not all the way healthy, but better.
As a result, I’ve felt like painting again. And I’ve wanted to paint in this particular app because it makes these fabulous drips. Just like real life drips. It is mesmerizing to sit and put water on the acrylic paint and watch it flow.
So I’m calling this painting Breakthrough because I didn’t think I’d ever make a halfway decent painting ever again that I liked.

This is my latest painting done in Corel Painter 2018 and Rebelle by Escape Motions.
I started it in Rebelle which is a fabulous app that mimics watercolors. It acts exactly like you are painting with real watercolors! Absolutely amazing. I use it to make drips. Which Painter just can’t do.
I ended up covering up all the drips but I left some of the watercolor blending. It’s really so subtle and wonderful.
In Painter I used acrylics to paint in textures. You get textures based on which papers you choose. Then you adjust your brush settings to the amount of paper texture you want.
After that I moved on to my present favorite thing to do. That is add liquid inks. They paint on their own layer. That’s because their layer had these special settings where you can tell the ink to become thick. Which I did. So that’s the lines that are standing up. Also the dots on those lines.
I finished with regular inks.
A very fun piece to work on.
Definitely this piece was an adventure for me.
Enjoy your day!
This is my most recent painting that I did in Painter. I started it in Rebelle as usual. Rebelle is a digital watercolor app that works just like real watercolor. It is written by digital artists.
I used Artist Oil brushes that I made to paint this. If anyone is interested in these bruins, drop me a line.
This was a very fun piece to paint. I love the colors I chose. They made my mouth water.
Something I discovered in this painting is that I used a more muted color for the leaves. This plays off the bright colors in the flowers and makes the bright show off more.
I know that the impressionists used grey in their paintings to show off their bright colors. I’ve just never totally understood that. But I see it in these leaves and flowers.
Enjoy your day!
This is a piece that I started in a new application, called Rebelle. Rebelle is basically a watercolor digital painting program. It is unbelievable! I have talked about it in my last two blogs. It makes watercolors and inks that flow and drip just like in the real world.
In Rebelle, I laid down a layer of acrylics and then used the water to make drips coming down all over the page. I also used the ink brush to add more details and drips.
Then I brought this into Painter and used oils to paint in the flowers and leaves.
This is another break-through piece for me. It is loose and flowing. Something I have tried very hard to get in my work.
I also managed to keep good light and dark values going in this piece. Another thing that has challenged me for quite some time.
