We got snow!!! About 1/2 a foot fell all day yesterday and last night. Is there anything prettier than falling snow?? Especially when you don't lose power {which is so rare!!} I think not. 
The sun is out today and it is melting pretty fast, but we are still homebound at least for another day. This gives me plenty of time to play with my new favorite app, Waterlogue. If you follow other blogs, I am sure you have seen bloggers displaying their 'painted' pics. It really is a fun thing to play around with and the learning curve is super easy.  


'It's Technical'

There are 12 pre-set effects to choose from. You can also select the size of the brush stroke and how light/dark you would like it. Simply upload your image and it it immediately starts sketching and then starts 'painting' in the layers of colors right before your eyes. This is really my favorite part, watching the process!

With people pics, I like using 'illustration' {left pic above} or 'technical' {right} or 'fashionable' because it adds a little outline and gives a bit more definition to details like the eyes and the nose. {Although 'technical' has an overall grid, which, I don't like.} I also increase the size of the brushstroke because it creates more details {With the brush size -- if you were actually doing a watercolor painting, the smaller number would be equal to a really wet brush stroke and the bigger number would be a drier brush}  

The pics above and below are done in 'natural'. 

Both of these images are from the wedding I worked on last summer. 

And just to show an example of the same pic done 2 ways --  this carriage ride pic from Emma's wedding on the left is 'natural' and the one on the right is 'bold'

So, tell me, are you using Waterlogue? Are you as addicted to this app as I am??
