Design Inspiration: Watercolors

by Steven Snell

May 31, 2009 in Inspiration

Last week I posted a collection of 500+ watercolor brushes for Photoshop. Today I’d like to provide some inspiration that may give you some ideas for using those brushes in your own work. In this post we’ll look at 35 pieces of work that use watercolor effects. Some are real watercolors and others are done in Photoshop with brushes.

    These images display the beauty of photoshop brushes. I love hand-painted images, but photoshop just gives you the edge.

    Hi Franz,
    Her work is amazing, you’re right. All of the work showcased in this post was from Behance, so if she’s not there, that’s why I didn’t find her. If she is there, then I somehow missed her while searching and browsing.
