i watering

From the digital end of the lookalike spectrum here is an iPhone app that lets you “paint just like Albert.” That’s Albert Namatjira from the Northern Territory in Australia. It turns out you can create ‘watercolours’ Namatjira style, colour in a template in a paint-by-numbers format or go DIY. Download a copy of the free app here.
Other art imitating possibilities are the chance to transform your own photographs into an Andy Warhol-like-product on iPad and “seeing your world through Picasso’s eyes” by converting videos into “cubist paintings” (seriously) on an Android. Warhol here and the gateway to cubism here.
