"Brushstrokes by Brownielocks" 
Strives to be the first with the awesome looks in watercolor on the net for you! :)


NO COMMERCIAL USE OF ANY OF MY IMAGES IS ALLOWED
(EXCEPT BY ME IN MY STORE!)

NO TAKING IMAGES AND RE-OFFERING THEM ON ANOTHER SITE!
 Do Not  Include My Watercolor in Any Other Background Collection...altered, enhanced, cropped, etc. This means free or commerical.
I've found several of my images stolen and put into another collection.  This is a copyright violation!
 Please do not use sites that steal.

Note: Background files come in either full screen size or tiles.
 Link images  are 100x100 and so  they not actual representations of the real files.
Click the small image to view and download the actual file.

 All images are scanned from actual watercolor done on paper.
We are not digital camera shots  of watercolor art.
We are NOT virtual watercolor fills like some computer/graphic design art programs offer either.
We are the real thing!  So we show our imperfections with pride! ;)

  The shading in some images is caused by the paper curling as it dries. Why did this happen?  Because I used drawing paper and not "official watercolor paper" for some files. Others I used professional paper. I, also, choose not to do any touchups in Paint Shop Pro (to remove curl shadings) to keep these as natural and untouched as possible in order to show the paint absorption on paper.


We offer a variety of images. Here are some examples:

Note about: GRAPHIC COMPRESSION? PLEASE READ!

Our Rules:
I've found it necessary to place this on all pages.
Many do not enter via the main page.  For those that do, I apologize for the redundancy.

  1. PLEASE DO NOT LINK TO MY IMAGES! Download them and put them in your own directory.
  2. You must place Our Credit Button on your page; OR, If you use a word link, it has to be legible. I'm discovering sites using my images and NO CREDIT! :(
  3. These backgrounds are for personal homepages only (unless written permission is given by me.)
  4. They are not to be used for commercial use or any profit.
    This means only I can use them to create products for sale if I wish. But, not YOU! 
  5. They are not to be taken from this site and presented on any other internet page of any kind; or redistributed in any way!  I've found several of my images on two other watercolor background sites!!!  They have been cropped and enhanced but they are still my images. This is a violation of the DMCA!
  6. They are not to be altered, edited, overlaid, etc. from their original look and claimed as original works by another. (Remember, I own the originals on paper!) Resizing to fit larger monitors is allowed if done proportionately.
  7. For aesthetic reasons, I did not clutter these up with my name or copyright.  But all images (link buttons and files) are embedded with a digital watermark from:
YOU STEAL MY BANDWIDTH!
