Watercolor, or Aquarella is a wonderful transparent and luminous artistic media. Watch as Aquarella transforms your image into one with liquid pools of color blended fluidly on paper to create a watercolor with all the delicate details found in a traditional watercolor media.

Look closely as you render your aquamedia to discover light delicate “blooms” of wet color running throughout your creation and brush strokes of overlapping pigment dried dark along the edges. You will be thrilled when you see your newly rendered watercolor - Auquarella is a professional artistic app and will deliver a high-end watercolor result true to the original media.


•Two professional-quality aquamedia styles: A traditional one applies fluid brush strokes and colorful washes; and a two toned one washes your image with soft color combinations

I was somewhat wrong!

I wrote an unfavorable review of the app. On going over the app again, I found a few more things it could do to enhance the picture that were not obvious before. Pays to tap on everything. Still seems like there was more before but maybe my memory is faulty on that? It’s definitely prettier than before. At least the app hasn’t completely disappeared from the app store which seems to happen to apps every time I buy a new iPad. CleverPainter and Etchings are no more. You may want to consider that before upgrading to a new device. Maybe Apple should send out notices when apps go defunct.

Excellent one-click watercolor art app!

Aquarella, like all JixiPix’s other apps, is pure quality. Just tried a random watercolor effect on a beach wallpaper—a framable work of art with one click! You can also tweak options such as color detail, wet edge strength, etc. I recommend all their iOS and Mac apps; you won’t be disappointed!

Artist's choice for watercolor

I have been using Aquarella for about a year now and find it is my go-to app for its watercolor effects. I am more of a dry brush, detail artist and find the multiple choices this app offers are at the top. From brush stroke detail, bloom, wash, and paper selection, Aquarella outperforms the rest.
I find most of this developer's apps top-notch and Aquarella is no exception!
