Sketch­able is a paint­ing app for Win­dows 10. It en­ables you to paint large strokes on large im­ages with no lag. Im­ages are cre­ated in ‘Jour­nals’, of which you can cre­ate any num­ber at any size. It’s like hav­ing mul­ti­ple sketch­books al­ways open.

This so­phis­ti­cated app has a large set of fea­tures usu­ally found only in ex­pen­sive desk­top pro­grams. A few of the more ob­vi­ous fea­tures found in the app are layer blend­ing modes, cus­tomis­able tools, im­portable brushes and pa­per tex­tures, and more.

There are some fea­tures that aren’t as ob­vi­ous at first glance. One such gem is the abil­ity to paint us­ing Sten­cils. These give you the abil­ity to con­strain your brush stroke to a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent shapes. Each shape can be trans­formed, moved, scaled and ro­tated.

Once you’ve tried paint­ing with sten­cils, they will be­come in­te­gral to your work flow.

Once you’ve cre­ated your sten­cil art in Sketch­able, you can ex­port it as a PSD.
