Watercolor Animal Prints

February 25th, 2015

I was shopping for prints for a kid’s room art wall I’m working on and was introduced to some wonderful watercolor animal prints on Etsy, one of my go to sources for artwork. The popularity of watercolors is still going strong, surging in the past year as a big trend, but the medium has been used in the art world for hundreds of years. 

Animal prints are the perfect accent in nurseries or children’s spaces but also placed around the house as well, anywhere you’d like to add some color and personality like a bathroom, family room, or kitchen. Retailers like Restoration Hardware charge so much for a single stylized animal print, but you can get the look with less expensive animal prints from artists in these shops I discovered on Etsy.

I purchased two prints from Ink Sprouts, I love the use of negative space and the coordinated palettes in these prints. (Instant downloads available too.)

Below are some examples of collected art walls in children’s spaces. As kids grow up and produce their own art, it’s always fun to include some of their best work alongside the professional prints too.
