16 Watercolor Photoshop Tutorials

Resources Tutorials 30924 Views September 7th, 2012

I have gathered the best Photoshop tutorials around the internet that teaches you how to create realistic watercolor effect using your own photos. Most of the watercolor Photoshop tutorials listed in this collection use watercolor brushes to obtain this painting effect. You will find really artistic and unique watercolor results.

You can combine for example watercolor effect with handwritting texture or you can mix the watercolor painting with ink brushes. The watercolor works perfectly with sketch brushes or pencil effects; you can experiment and create your own watercolor artworks.


I have added two new tutorials. Learn how to create watercolor photo effect and a realistic watercolor text effect using Photoshop. I am using watercolor textures, Photoshop filters and adjustment layers to obtain a pretty realistic looking watercolor effect that can be obtained fast and easy.

Because sketches and pencil drawing work so well with watercolor effects you can take a look at these sketch brushes. Or you can combine color with black accents using these ink brushes for adding more contrast.
