As promised here are 36 high resolution textures I took when I was in Venice. Feel free to use them as you like.
I headed over to Venice for a few days to attend State of the Art Academy Day 3. There was great talks from speakers such as Peter Guthrie, Pixela, Ronen Bekerman, Adam Hotovy and Tomek Miksa. Lots of great subjects were brought up and I got to meet a lot of the 3d community. I particularly enjoyed Pixela showing how to create amazing pillows in Marvous Designer and Adam Hotovy giving a great insight into the importance colour theory and harmony. A couple of cool links to check out are Gobotree and Color Scheme Designer 3
I also got the chance to check out Venice and I am working on the texture pack which should be up here soon.
