About ArtRage & Ambient Design

ArtRage is the main software product of Ambient Design. It started out in 2004 as a free painting program for Mac OS and Windows but has grown into professional level painting software. ArtRage is on its fourth edition, and now mobile apps for Android, iPad and iPhone. The apps can be used independently of the desktop program, but are widely used by en plein air artists to draft work in the field before continuing in the full program.
