Waterlogue--An App for a Watercolor Wannabe

Since my children were little, I've tried to draw and paint what I see in nature, but you know, sometimes you've got it, sometimes you just don't! Eventually, I moved from drawing to photography for many reasons, but the biggest of which was talent (or lack thereof!) Can technology change all that? Well, in a sense, yes! It has for me!  I shot a photo of the Hiker's Tunnel last week in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park shortly after finding its hidden location. See some of those photos here.  Then last night, I turned that photo into a watercolor at the touch of a button on a $2.99 app on my iPhone. The name of the app, you ask? "Waterlogue"--how sweet is that???

What do you think? I'd love to hear your feedback in the comments section below!

  1. Love, love, love how your picture turned out! Just found your blog and getting some great ideas. I grew up hiking in the Smoky Mtns and just moved back after almost 40 years away. Starting to enjoy the trails again. FMcD
