Bringing Back the Taste of Painting


For a long time, painting and drawing alike has been practised in a vast range of styles and using a variety of mediums, most recently it has moved into the digital age. The introduction of technology has removed the need for an artist to prepare an extensive list of tools and has reduced this down to a tablet and stylus.

Davinch is a digital accessory for artists, that aims to bring back the behaviours of analogue painting and re-introduce the ‘Taste of Painting’ that was lost. It is comprised of three main elements; the first is the roughness of the brush, this simulates the amount of water on the brush, the second is a colour picker which is a reference to a painter’s palette. The final is a small cradle, which holds the brush when it is not in use.

Davinch certainly allows the convenience of digital painting, while retaining the emotion and process of analogue art.
