Here I am – getting my hands dirty. Okay, not literally dirty – only in the digital sense.

I find it rather amusing how we do our best to mold and shape pixels – digital ones and zeroes – into something that replicates the analog world of pigment and canvas.

Digital painting effects is not a new discovery for me. I have made multiple attempts to create this look using Photoshop and various plug-ins. But there was something deeply gratifying about creating this “painting” with finger and stylus on my smartphone as opposed to mouse clicks and keyboard shortcuts in front of the PC.

Back to kindergarten and the joy of fingerpainting.


Apps: Repix (Android and iOS); Handy Photo (Android and iOS)

  1. Your joy comes through. Unusual effects. I’m envious of those of you who can actually see well enough to do photo editing on cell phones.

  2. It’s beautiful, Brenda.

  3. I love your creation! Yes, finger painting is fun and good even when you don’t get those fingers messy!

  4. This is lovely, Brenda! You are able to use these apps so creatively — I am glad you are having so much fun.

  5. I hope you will one day have an exhibit of your art, especially images of the buildings in your town. I am sure viewers would be amazed and thrilled by your vision and artistry. And clearly phone photography and its many apps is another means of artistic expression for you. It would be one big exhibit!!

I greatly appreciate your comments!
