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. Using water and pigment, he creates a stunning piece of art. Ebru is quite popular in Turkey and designs can be either abstract or figurative.

He can watch his process in the video below: first, he deposits drops of blue color to form the background. Next, he creates multi-colored circles which he manipulates into the recognizable shapes of flowers and leaves. Finally, he transfers the design he has made onto a piece of paper and set it out to dry.
