There is no need to be an artist or an exemplary creative type to colour. Additionally, it’s is a hobby that can be taken wherever you go.

Lake also promises a meditative colouring experience. The app is free to download and there are plenty of in-app purchases, but for those just looking to give the app a whirl, there is plenty of free content to start with.

Features of Lake include one free illustration a day, with new artists and new colouring books added continuously and a five-piece tool set that consists of an acrylic brush, watercolour brush, spray, fill and an eraser.
