10 Wonderful Water Designs

Summer carries notions of fun in the sun, but I contend that water is what we truly crave.  The cool relief afforded by floating in a pool or the excitement of running through a sprinkler on a hot summer day is universal.  Water is beautiful, its properties responsible for rainbows, dazzling shadows on pool bottoms, cloud shapes, and even perfectly-symmetrical, crystalline snowflakes.  No wonder it serves as inspiration for dazzling artwork, evident in the following 10 designs that incorporate water as a major focal point.

Waterfall by Zamzami

I love the designer’s technique that allows so many colors to be used in the water while maintaining a realistic look.
