Store Description:

If you've ever watched a painter at work, you've undoubtedly felt the urge to try it for yourself. But getting an easel and expensive supplies is a serious commitment. Vermillion brings professional painting equipment into your own room, using Passthrough. If you need some time off from the real world (who doesn't?), you can immerse yourself in your painting session by disappearing into one of the studio environments.

You can paint seated, standing, or even lying down. Use the floating web browser to learn to paint alongside your favorite artists on YouTube, or project reference photos on the canvas.

Vermillion features realistic wet-on-wet color mixing, undo, layers, and a wide range of simulated brushes. Developed with the feedback of both traditional and digital artists, you're sure to get the fun of oil painting without any of the frustration. 

Once done, share your masterpiece directly on Facebook as an image. Or, create a beautifully varnished 3D model export for your VR home.
