Weekend Freebie 07-27-18: Colorful Watercolor

Each weekend, starting Friday, I will be giving away something for free; to start it might only be textures, but as I get more into (digital) mixed media, it might be digital stencils, digital brushes, or even an image that you can use. I hope that you enjoy creating with the freebies.

Note: The file will expire Sunday evening at 9:30 PM (Pacific Time). The file is temporarily stored on Dropbox. If you don’t have an account, or don’t want to create one, go to the bottom of the dialog box and click on “NO thanks, continue to view”

Weekend Freebie #30

Today’s freebie was created in ArtStudio Pro on my iPad Pro. The app is quickly becoming one of my favorites for creating background textures. I also blended the texture with a photo of some distressed metal to give it more of a grunge look. The final image size is 6000 x 4000 @ 300 dpi. File size is 16.65 MB.

Here’s a couple of samples using this weeks image.

I would love to see what you create with this texture. Feel free to leave a link to where you’ve posted a picture.

You may sell any artwork you create with this texture, as long as it is not the dominant part of your artwork.

You MAY NOT sell the texture as your own or include it as part of a group/package of downloads.

      Thank you. Mary. I used one of the Georgia O’Keefe presets in Topaz Impression to give the furled ferns a painterly look, then masked at 50% to bring back some detail in the whirls. Since it was shot against a white building, it was easy for using this weekend’s freebie.
