Want to turn your iOS device into a canvas that you can sketch on anywhere? Then you’ll love Colored Pencil. On the iPhone, the app gives you the joy of finger painting; however, using the app with Apple Pencil on an iPad elevates the experience to a whole new level – it’s just like drawing with actual pencils!
With Colored Pencil, not only can you blend colours and adjust the intensity and thickness of the strokes, but you can also add a gradient effect to your nib (if you’re feeling fancy).
If plain white paper is too boring for you – try drawing on coloured or textured backgrounds for a change of pace. Don’t forget to make use of layers. Start your masterpiece with darker shades and build on them layer by layer with lighter colours. Then, if needed, just retouch or adjust each layer separately.
The app is powerful without being overly complicated, so it’s perfect for kids to sketch with and parents to share in the fun.
Lacking inspiration? With Colored Pencil, just import a photo as a sketch and start colouring from there. Anyone seeing your art would be none the wiser.
All you need is a high contrast photo taken against a simple background. Use the app to process it into a draft, and then start colouring until it’s just right. Use this feature to add beautiful handwritten captions or doodles to your photos.
Whether you’re looking to create art or just relax, Colored Pencil is the perfect space for your creativity.
