40 Really Bad Watercolor Interpretations Of Photos On Reddit

Redditor Shitty_Watercolour has, for the past two months, been making watercolors of photos and threads on reddit. Though, with all that practice, they might just be outliving their username.

One of the best things about reddit is how brilliance tends to float to the surface (like little balls of wonder propelled by cats). Every now and then you get your local reddit rockstars, often sporting the guise of ‘novelty accounts.’ For the uninitiated, a novelty account typically involves a descriptive username, and responses relevant to that username.

If you’ve been on reddit during the past two months, you’ve probably seen the work of redditor Shitty_Watercolour. Post something good, and chances are you’ll get a shitty watercolour* in your thread. Except, over the course of Shitty_Watercolour’s redditeer**, they’ve gotten markedly better.

* Or “watercolor,” for those of us in the US
** Like career, but with reddit in front… no?

Today, Shitty_Watercolour posted this photo to commemorate the journey thus far:

It didn’t take long for this to make the very top of the reddit front page (and rightfully so).

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look back at some of Shitty’s watercolours, along with their originals.

You can see more of Shitty_Watercolour’s work at their tumblr here, and (if you are feeling generous and really dig their work), can donate to the charity of their choice here. You should probably also check out this brilliant novelty battle thread, between Shitty_Watercolour and RedditNoir. It might just be borderline genius.
