Paint Like Van Gogh In Less Than A Minute!

Guitar A Study In Oil
La Guitarra - A Study In Oil

Like many iPhone users, I have a plethora of weird and wonderful Apps. Two of my favourites are PaintMee and SketchMee.

I studied art at school, over forty years ago and Vasari‘s, ‘Life of the Artists’, still takes pride of place, in my library, thirty years after, it cost me, the equivalent of a week’s rent.

You can spend a lifetime trying to paint like Monet or Van Gogh and still not create a work of merit but for those of you, like me, who want to convert photographs to simulate an oil, Apps like PaintMee are brilliant.

I took my prized Space Guitar photograph and PaintMee converted it into an acceptable oil rendering, in less than in sixty seconds. For sheer entertainment, programs like PaintMee are fantastic.

If you do not possess the odd $75,000,000, to purchase a Van Gogh, why not buy PaintMee for $2 and let the computer power of your iPhone, create you a unique painting.

My name is Steve Howard. You have been reading the digital circus.
