22 Oddly Satisfying Animations for Anyone Obsessed with Color

Kevin Whipps March 31, 2021 · 2 min read
Are you obsessed with color? Now I’m not talking about just liking cool shades now and then, I’m referring to being truly in-deep with color. You want to live in one shade — or all of them. You’re addicted today, but it’s not a new thing — it’s been there your entire life. The type of color fan that would check into rehab if one existed — that kind of obsessive. If you are, well then have I got a gift for you. I’ve rounded up some of the best GIFs and videos you’ve ever seen that will make your color-loving head soar in glee. These are so satisfying to watch that it verges on indulgent. Let me put it this way: if these videos were at a restaurant, it would be making noises that would prompt another customer to say, “I’ll have what she’s having.” Get my drift? And to make things a bit easier, I’ve grouped them by theme. You know, that way you can pick your faves. Enjoy.


I don’t know what it is, but watching paint being mixed is relaxing. Of course, it has to do with the methodology and all that, but I think you’ll get my drift once you watch a few of these. Smoothing paint with a spoon Starry Night in motion Milky paint mix Milky paint mix 2 Smearing paint Raking paint Knife paint spreading

Fractals and Patterns

If it’s geometric, it goes here. Or maybe if it’s just weird. Who knows, but these things relax the heck out of me. Geometric spiral Color machine Circular fractal Color hole Hexagonal colors Spiral colors Bouncy

Everything Else

Does it fit into one of the other two categories? No? Then here it sits. Reverse sand Paper ball Neon Tubes Earth and Venus' Orbit Colorful jelly pull Sparkly ball of goo

You’re Welcome

Enjoy that, did you? Well that’s good, because I did, too. In fact, it inspired me quite a bit. That’s why you’ll have to excuse me, but I have some coloring to do.
