Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Oil Paint Textures

12 Jan

Welcome back! This is our first Wicked Wednesdays texture extravaganza for 2011 and we’ve got a good one to kick off the new year. This week’s textures are all taken from oil paintings that my family members have created. They’re small sections of larger works, with incredible textures and colours that could be just the thing for your next design project or web design.

As usual, all Hosking Industries high resolution texture images are FREE for personal and commercial use, however repackaging and redistribution on other websites, DVDs, CDs or other mediums is prohibited. So don’t do it!
