While rambling on Monday afternoon, I took the photograph shown above of the north Derbyshire countryside. I was outside The Peak District near the village of Cutthorpe.
Because of Steve Reed at "Shadows and Light" I have been made aware of a photo enhancing app called "Waterlogue" and this morning I took the bold step of purchasing said app from Microsoft Store. It is the first app I have ever bought.
After installing "Waterlogue" and within seconds I had re-imaged the photo to produce the two new versions shown below. They really do look like authentic watercolours and it would be very easy to have either of them transferred to a photo canvas.
"Waterlogue" is a wonderful new toy and for £1.69 I think it is a bargain. Something to keep me occupied through the winter months and I'm not hurting anybody am I ? As someone who is interested in painting and occasionally dabbles in it, I must say that it is a little discouraging to see how rapidly "Waterlogue" "paints" a presentable picture for you. Only after many hours of determined labour could I ever produce anything resembling that window "painting".
