Digital Workshop: Microsoft Reimagines Paint

Special thanks to Techspert Trevor who posted this on HAL’s Digital Workshop blog.

Van Gogh used “Paint as Paint”, meaning he not only expressed the way he saw things in his art but he was very topographical with his medium! With globs of paint straight from the tube on the canvas, he created thick layered textures, peaks and valleys, crumbling dry and smearing wet, rich colors together. This amazing App will turn your Windows 8 computer screen into a realistic, caked-up oil canvas. From finger painting with a touch screen to unique brush strokes with your pointer, YOU can be the new “Digital” Van Gogh with Windows 8 “Fresh Paint”! The timing for a new age of digital art couldn’t be better with the introduction of Microsoft’s Windows 8 touch screen interfaces for tablets, laptops and desktop computers.

Fresh Paint is an easy to use, free app that includes oil paint and all the tools you need to paint. Whether you are an aspiring artist, parent, or kid (or kid at heart), Fresh Paint will help you unleash your inner creativity. Windows 8 believes that brilliant, creative ideas can come from anyone, anytime. It’s time to set your creativity free.

With your fancy palette, dab into the infinite amount of high quality colors, shades and patterns with four different brush styles. Create you own colors!

Choose what kind of textured paper, canvas or background you want to use.

    Thanks so much for the info on Paint. We were on the Noordam for 21 days in the Caribbean and looked forward to the info on Windows 8 as we have a new laptop with that on it. The Techspert did the best she could with handouts but the ship did not have Windows 8 on the laptops so we could try what we learned. When will that be on board the Holland America ships? Thanks so much.
