30 Free Watercolor Brush Sets for Adobe Photoshop

By on Photoshop

When it comes to design, some styles come and go. Others, on the other hand, remain popular for years, if not decades. Watercolor effect is one of the most popular design styles in both web and graphic design. Using various combinations of pastel and neutral colors, this subtle technique gives designers the ability to give a natural, fresh and spring-like feel to their designs.

One way to add this effect to your designs is to spend hours creating it from scratch. Or, you could download a high-quality, watercolor brush pack for Photoshop, and apply it to all your designs in just a fraction of time needed to make it from scratch.

Watercolor brushes are a great choice for modern design projects that require a subtle texture and a tiny bit of depth. Given the delicate nature of watercolor brushes, they are great for poster design and flyer design as well as invitations and website backgrounds.

There are also watercolor brushes that are more grungy in nature which makes them perfect for more edgy designs and you could even use them to create a tie-dye effect on apparel or accessory designs. Another way to use these watercolor brushes is to create modern stationery items such as notebooks, notepads or journals.

In this roundup, we have 30 free watercolor Photoshop brush sets to help you create your own watercolor-styled designs. You will find delicate watercolor flowers, grungy watercolor brush strokes, retro watercolor splashes, and tons more. Check them out below, download them, and apply them to your designs.
