Pixelated Watercolor Paintings by Adam Lister

Painter Adam Lister combines the nostalgic digital look of 8-bit images with the hand-touched aesthetic of watercolors to create these dynamic compositions. Lisner uses just enough visual information in his minimal style to allow these iconic characters and scenes to be deciphered.
