200+ Free Watercolor Texture Images to Download

I love watercolor textures in my designs because they bring back good and happy childhood memories. As a child, I loved drawing landscapes, people and things in vibrant colors. These days, watercolor art is one of the hottest trend in web design. Using watercolor textures  in web design is one of the easiest trick to make your websites look more artistic.  Watercolors also give your design a personal touch, making it more warm and inviting to others. At the same time,  they make our designs lively,  especially those in bright happy colors. That is why, in this roundup, we listed down some of the best free watercolor texture images that can be found online. I hope you will also find most of these images useful in your work and personal projects.
