This unknown artist seem to be taking the idea of watercolor quite literally. In fact, he's practicing the ancient Turkish art of Ebru, also known as paper marbling.

After seeing how tilt-shift photography could make real world scenes appear like miniature models, Serena Malyon, a third-year art student, decided to simulate the effect on Van Gogh's famous paintings.
