Review: Nature Painter for iPad
One great feature with the iPad tablet is the ability to draw and paint on the touch screen like it is a canvas. With that in mind we’ve found a wonderful educational painting app from the developer Lucky Martian. This iPad app is called Nature Painter. Nature Painter is a world-class digital oil painting simulator that works and looks great on your iPad display.
Nature Painter was developed as a way to take time out and get away from it all and unwind while being creative. The user interface is well designed and we really like the user-friendly tutorials that will guide you through the basics of landscape painting. (Screenshot after the break)
One other thing we really enjoy is the concept of painting nature scenes. You can very easily get lost in your work as you create in the environment of this app. The Nature Painter iPad app is great for all levels of skill and experience. Whether you’re a novice painter or professional artist, you’ll find that Nature Painter to be a great painting app.
