If you are thinking of creating your next web design using a painted style, you have two options. You can purchase real painting materials and create your own Photoshop brushes, or you can use free brushes that have been created by someone else.

    I love it. I’m a huge fan of textures and swirls. I like them a lot better than glossy Web 2.0 stuff. This stuff is perfect for me. Thanks!
