Thanksgiving Special

Here, in the US, we are getting ready for Thanksgiving. Since I’m planning on changing web hosting companies within the next 5 days or so I won’t have time for a regular Weekend Freebie. I wanted to give you, my readers/followers, something special as a gift of my gratitude.

From today through November 30th you can download the low resolution version of Painterly Textures for free. That’s 20 textures at 1200 x 1600 pixels  in one .zip file. Just click on the download button below, then, on the page

  • click on the green Buy Now button
  • on the next screen click on “Have a discount code?” and enter TDAY2018.
  • enter your name, email address, and select your country before clicking on the Get It Now button.


The Painterly Texture set features 20 various tones that can be used in your digital playground. This was my first attempt to create a texture on my iPad Pro without starting with a photo. I was looking to create something with bold colors and a paintbrush look. With the texture to my liking, I set out to change the tone. I ended up with over 23 variations, but pared it down to 20. Each texture is 1200 x 1600 pixels in PNG-24 format.

Use these textures as a background for your photos or digital art, or as overlays to add more color to your subject. The only limit is your imagination, but some  ideas are landscapes, macro or close-ups, animals, or even scrapbook pages. Don’t limit yourself to using just 1 texture with your photo, use more than 1 and mask in different colors. I have a blog post that shows how I created the Amaryllis image (slide #3) using 3 of the textures.

Download is 1 zip file (198 MB) for the low-res textures.

Weekend Freebie – Feb 9, 2018: Alcohol Ink Woodgrain

This year I’ve started a new post category, Friday Freebie. Every 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.

Weekend Freebie 10-05-18: Out in Space

This weeks freebie was created by me on my iPad Pro using Artstudio Pro. I started with a gradient ring, added an image of clouds & an image of concrete grunge that I took with my iPhone SE, then used some brushes that come with the app to create the stars and debris. The final image size is 6000 x 4000 @ 300 dpi. File size is 14.20 MB.
