Painting software typically falls into two categories: tools designed for serious artists and hobbyists that can be tricky to master but offers lots of advanced tools, and simple apps that let kids enjoy fingerpainting without destroying your soft furnishings.
Artweaver Free is a rare exception, offering highly customizable, realistic media to work with, and an interface that won't be off-putting for youngsters who just want to play.
It works brilliantly with a mouse or touchscreen, with support for layers and a huge range of pens, brushes, pencils and other tools.
