Project Description

Create a custom digital watercolor texture or texture pattern

Create your own custom digital watercolor! Paint your watercolor, then scan it and adjust coloring + vibrancy in Photoshop, then cut it out of the background following the steps in the class. Share your new digital watercolor texture or texture pattern with the class - bonus points for applying it to vector elements or typography!

DELIVERABLE

Create your own custom digital watercolor and share the following:

  • any inspiration for your watercolor color choices
  • a photo or scan of the original watercolor artwork
  • a color adjusted version
  • the watercolor texture on a different colored background, or the texture transformed into a seamless repeatable pattern
  • any application experiments like typography or vector elements!
