Artist Studio Watercolor Actions

By: Twinbrush Rating:

a few simple clicks, you can turn your photographs into beautiful watercolor and ink sketch studies. The Twinbrush Artist Studio Watercolor Actions contains two different actions. One mimics the look of a soft watercolor study, the other is more reminiscent of a slightly more gritty, comic influenced, watercolor and ink illustration.

Artist Studio Watercolor Actions

Authentic Both actions automatically use custom Photoshop brushes, created by capturing real-world, traditional marks adding to the authenticity of the effect. Brush strokes, washes, daubs, drops and splatters are all included, creating a detailed and layered texture The process is randomized meaning, every time you run the action you’ll get a unique outcome.

Customize the look when the actions have finished running, all layers are logically and clearly grouped, giving you control over the strength of the various marks, splatters, colours and linework.

Simple to use – simply create a new layer, brush over the approximate area you would like to apply the effect to and click play!

Please note the actions work best on large images (minimum of 2000px along the largest edge). Ideally something between 3000px – 5000px works best.

• Unique result every time
• Based on and created with real, traditional marks

    This product looks really good, however I have never used actions before in my PS work. Are they easy to use? I have the Adobe photographers package so have the latest version of PS. Are these actions compatible?


      Hey Craig,

      Thank you so much for your comment and we’re so glad you like the look of this one!

      The great news is, the designer has confirmed that this is compatible with Adobe Photoshop CC or newer so if you have the latest version you shouldn’t have any problems. The designer has also included detailed instructions and I believe a video tutorial too, but if you did have any problems, you can always pop us over an email on and we can help :)

    I am using CS6. I have the same compatibility question.


      Hey Sydney,

      Thanks so much for your comment!

      Unfortunately, the designer has advised that this one is only compatible with Adobe Photoshop CC or newer so this won’t work in your CS6 I am afraid. My sincerest apologies for any disappointment caused.

    This produces some very interesting finished products. I’ve only used it a bit so far, but producing a nice result is as simple as the 2 steps shown (well, after you load the brushes & actions). Then if you want to tweak the results, the layers are there to play with. There are some aspects that (as far as I can tell) you can’t adjust, but there are a lot that you can. I have CS6, and this works fine in my software, other than a small error at the end when it tries to collapse all layers. The action will tax your computer; they are complex and take a while to run. This came as part of a package I bought, but if you missed that it is fun enough to purchase on its own. (I’m really very impressed with it.)


      Hey Anne,

      Thanks for the awesome review! This is really interesting to hear and we super appreciate you taking the time to share this with the rest of our community :)

      Whilst it is fantastic that this one is working for you, the designer hasn’t created this one for anything older than CC, so we, unfortunately, cannot give the go-ahead for earlier versions I am afraid!

    Besides, in the instructions readme text it talks about a video and there is not video on the package.

    Thank you for your attention.


      Hey Ana,

      I am so sorry for any disappointment caused, but this one is only compatible with Photoshop CC or newer I am afraid!

      The designers that we work with will always list the software compatibility in the item description on the deal page, so my sincerest apologies if you missed this! I’ve just popped you over an email though with some more information :)

    Hello, I am using an old Photoshop version (CS5) and when I try to import brushes it tells me the archive is not compatible with my version. Is there anyway to make it compatible?

    Thank you

      Will this software work with Affinity Photo.

      • Annabel Smith

        Thanks so much for commenting Peter!

        I am really sorry for any confusion caused over the compatibility of this pack. We always list the software compatibility of all of our products on the deal page, so I am really sorry if you possibly missed this!

        Actions tend to be a very software-specific resource, and unfortunately these actions are only compatible with Photoshop CC and newer- I’m really sorry for any disappointment caused! Affinity compatible products are a big focus for us this year however Peter, so rest assured there will be lots more products in our upcoming releases that I hope you will have great fun checking out :).
