Painted in Waterlogue

This week introduces a new element to Lens and Pen by Sally’s Non-Traditional photo challenge – editing and processing using apps.  I’ve been wanting to try Waterlogue and as I expected it’s been fun seeing what my photos might look like if I had any talent with watercolor.

My first attempt was this still life bouquet of dried Hydrangea that some of you might recognize from a post earlier this year.


I think each image has something interesting to offer but would love to hear your thoughts about which you prefer and why.

  1. Both are lovely. Each has elements that draw me into them. The original leads me from top to bottom–the complex to the simple. The processed one gives that painterly effect that works well with floral still life. Happy Photo Challenge.


  2. Both are lovely. I think the original already has a painterly effect, shades and tones, light and shadows. The processed image is more impressionist art and really pops out the colours. I can’t wait to see more of these 🙂

  3. Lisa,

    At first I thought the water color edited picture was amazing. But when I saw it compared to the original, my impression changed from “cool” to “abstract”. The software seemed to leave too many white areas on the canvas. But then again, I’ve never been much on impressionist or abstract art.

    1. Thanks Redneck Garage Art Critic. 😉 Plenty of people have strong opinions regarding abstract art, and many feel the same way about impressionism. I’m glad your first impression was a positive one though!


      1. Lisa,
        Thanks! You just gave me an idea for a new post…impressionist gear-head art from my garage. I have some photo apps I can play with. Hopefully this will undo the interesting search terms I will be receiving thanks to Nancy.

  4. I love them both!!! But, if I have to pick and favorite then it’s definitely the first image. I love how the app transformed that bouquet into a watercolor painting. It’s really playful and a joy to look at. Great work! 🙂


  5. I love,love, love the Waterlogue edit/processing. I used to have a similar app when I had an iPhone, I’ll have to look for an android version for my Samsung. I think I love this type of app is because I would love to paint…but don’t quite have the aptitude.


  6. This is one of my favorite of your posts I’ve ever seen. Love the angle at which you shot this photo in the first place. I just don’t have your perspective! But then the Waterlogue edit made it even more special. It DOES look like a watercolor painting. Love, love, love this. (Would you mind if I pinned it to my Pinterest board for Flowers?)


  7. Love the colors and texture of both of these images! My husband has lots of fun using various apps on his photos (and sometimes mine). It’s always fun to see how they transform. It actually helps me understand how I could paint the image … IF I had time and talent!
