Watercolour Reference

Watercolour Reference is an app for mobile devices designed to assist watercolour artists and painters, either beginners or the more advanced. This app assists the artist in the choice of appropriate colours and shades by providing data on individual colour characteristics and suggesting colour mixes/combinations for a variety of topics.

If you have an iPhone and Apple Watch, suggested colour mixes can be viewed on your Apple Watch for quick reference.

Watercolour Reference currently uses the watercolour portfolios of Winsor & Newton and Daniel Smith.

Included with this app are suggested combinations and tips for portrait and flower painting plus a general watercolour characteristics database.

Additional categories can be purchased via the in-app purchasing systems on each platform. Currently available for purchase are mix suggestions and tips for Buildings, Seascapes, Snowy Landscapes and Summer Landscapes. The app is currently available for iOS, Android, and Windows.
