We have had a couple of snow days here and this has been a super fun way to add a watercolor filter to some of our photos using the Waterlogue app. Inspired by this recent post from Poppyhaus, Jack and I decided to experiment with some of our snowy pictures and a few other favorite places. What a great way to use technology artistically. The boys are working on taking photos of some lego creations right now that should make some great colorful canvases to watercolor. Jack had so much fun taking some of these snow pictures and they all love to see how the photo transforms to a watercolor. When a photo starts filtering in the app you can see the different layers of technique. First the drawing, then picking colors, wetting brushes, then painting. I am hopeful that this will inspire some real life watercolor art too. It seems like landscapes and larger blocks of color work well. Facial details did not turn out as well, but I love the silhouettes of the kids.
