    My First Watercolor Painting

    Dear All,

    This is my first artwork with ArtRange Lite. I have been looking for natural art software, specifically on watercolour effects and brushes. Looks like ArtRange is the best. All comments and feedback are welcome.

    Thank you.

    Very nice flowing style.

    Yes, Artrage and Rebelle are probably the most direct and intuitive programs for emulating western watercolour. While Rebelle has unique strengths I always turn to Artrage as I think it is most flexible and optimised for mixed media, and also fits best into a workflow with other applications.

    The only other natural media program I can think of that might be worth consideration is Expressii, but only if you have a particular need for an eastern watercolour painting engine (where brushes are far more changeable and pigments flow readily over the paper rather than into the grain).

    It is worth trying a few applications to see which particularly suits your workflow and expectations, but having used artrage since it launched in 2004 I am still finding it the best fit for any "non digital" style artwork I do on the computer. Even if it is not your only "natural art" software it is worth having in the centre of your toolkit. I spent many years working in 3D where I was happy to forgo a copy of photoshop to use whatever else was at hand, but I always had an artrage license for when a non-digital look or feel was required.

    Wet on to wet watercolour

    Thanks Pavig Lok for your nice feedback. I like the software and quickly upgraded from Lite to ArtRange 5. I will need sometimes to learn features related to watercolour techniques. Today, based on reading this forum and watching youtube, I managed to continue the exercise for wet on to wet techniques.

    As always, comments and feedback are welcome.

    Checkout Expresii watercolor program, it does just as going job as Rebelle and I believe it only does watercolor.
