Adobe Fresco, Drawing and Painting app with AI powered Live Brushes

Adobe launches dedicated drawing and painting app named Fresco which was formerly known as Project Gemini. With Live Brushes feature, Fresco app uses AI to recreate the behavior of oils and watercolors.

In art history, fresco(‘fresh’ in Italian) is an ancient painting technique which has been used for centuries all over the . The artist spreads a layer of plaster on a wall or ceiling. While the plaster is still wet, artist paints the image using a simple mixture of pigment and water. A chemical reaction binds the pigment to the still-wet plaster and the image becomes a part of the wall. Once the plaster is dry, the painter has to stop – the chemical magic is gone. When inspiration strikes, you have to act before the plaster dries. Adobe developed Fresco to empower spontaneous creativity. It is built for the Apple iPad and you will be able to bring Fresco wherever you go. It frees drawing and painting from the desktop and lets you create everywhere, anytime.

The fresco technique also makes it clear how organic drawing and painting have always been. For generations, artists have distilled pigments from plants and minerals and created through the physical interaction of chalk, oils, and watercolors with paper, canvas, and plaster.

Adobe Fresco will replicate those organic interactions and expand on them. Adobe scientists have studied the chemistry of common real-world pigments like cobalt and ochre. They have looked at the of how watercolors are absorbed into thick, cotton-based paper. And they have examined the ways that a thick slash of oil paint dries to add dimension to a painting.

The result is Live Brushes, which use the artificial intelligence of Adobe Sensei to recreate the behavior of oils and watercolors in an amazingly lifelike way. When you paint with a watercolor Live Brush, you’ll see the color bloom into adjacent areas of the paper. Use red and yellow next to each other and they’ll naturally blend into orange at the border. You can even recreate painting with water to dilute some colors and encourage tints to mix.

With an oil Live Brush, you can slather on a thick coat of paint and see the ridges and brush strokes that give the painting dimension. And you can mix different oil colors together to create a varied swirl of color that no digital color could ever provide.

Live Brushes are something that no other drawing and painting app can match. But they’re not all Fresco offers. You can use all your favorite Photoshop brushes directly in Fresco, and get access to thousands of additional brushes created by famous digital brush maker Kyle Webster. Photoshop brushes can do things real-world brushes can’t, such as building stamps from shapes like stars, people, trees, or grass. And Fresco includes vector brushes, which create clean, crisp, and infinitely scaleable lines and shapes. You can even create your own brush using Adobe Capture. Fresco’s brushes combine the qualities of real-world painting and digital creation in a unique and sophisticated way.

There are four watercolor Live Brushes (round detail, wash soft, wash flat and wet spatter) and seven oil options (flat, round, filbert, detail, glaze, chunky and short). Like any brush, you can change the size and flow to meet your needs. For watercolor, you can also adjust the water flow level, and for the oil brushes, you can tweak the amount of paint mix. You can also futz with variables like shape, pressure and velocity dynamics, as well as the angle of the brush. Lastly, you can turn the canvas texture off for the oil Live Brushes, and there’s the option to adjust spacing and scatter for watercolors.

For now, Adobe Fresco will only be available on iPad. More specifically, you’ll need iOS 12.4 or higher and the iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air (3rd generation), iPad (5th and 6th generation) or iPad mini (5th generation). Adobe says the plan is to bring the app to more devices and platforms in the future, like Microsoft Surface and Wacom Mobile Studio Pro.
