A Showcase of Watercolor in Web Design

By WebdesignerDepot Staff Posted Mar. 30, 2010 Reading time: Less than a minute

Watercolor is such an old school element. Artists have been using watercolor for hundreds of years, and web designers have adopted the style for good reason.

Watercolor is a great way to add depth, interesting subtle textures and colors. It can really give your site an authentic, natural feel.

The examples compiled in this collection use watercolor in different ways; whether it’s for the main graphic of the site or the more subtle and faint hints that get you to look twice.

Watercolor has been around for a century and I know most of you will say it’s a trend, but you can’t argue with something that has pioneered painting and art.
