Ridley Scott’s dystopian science fiction thriller Blade Runner, now more than 30 years after its original release, has been re-imagined in dream-like watercolor. Swedish artist Anders Ramsell created 12,597 aquarelle watercolor paintings in his Blade Runner: The Aquarelle Edition.
His paintings, combined with original sound from the movie, form a 35-minute paraphrase of the plot that follows the original storyline.
Aquarelle is a style of watercolor painting that employs thin, transparent watercolors. The imagery in Anders’ video features soft pastel hues that are in harsh contrast to the original movie’s dark and dreary scenes.
