Imagine how dull and boring our universe would have been if there were no colors in it, if everything were only black and white. Computers were in the same plight, when they were first invented. But with the advancement of technology, today it is possible to produce any color out of the infinite shades of colors that exist in our universe, on your screen. Even these colors can be tweaked to produce any effect you desire. Below I have collected 25 pictures that contain the so called “watercolor effect”.
All of us remember those Kindergarten classes where our teacher used to instruct us to paint the nearby tree in watercolors and when we always used to mess the whole thing up. The result was not a beautiful tree on paper but the spilling of colors on our drawing book and on ourselves. Thank the engineers, today that same tree can be produced more artistically and less tediously with the help of computers. Of course you need to be well versed with the appropriate color software’s. But once you are through, you can achieve amazing results with some clicks of your fingers.
All the following water colored images are taken from specific websites. What I intend to show you here is that good websites can be made by using watercolor effects. You don’t always need to stick to the traditional, stale color effects methods that everyone else is using.
