WATERCOLOR PAINTING WITH TEXTURE
In watercolor texture requires observation and a very little skill. First observe the pattern and then recreate the pattern over and over.
The patterns could include diamonds, scales (a series of "U"s touching each other), leaves drawn like spades or hearts overlapping, foam (bubbles touching each other), wood (wavy lines in parallel), dimple for the hammered metal, etc. There is an infinite variety of textures you may find your own.
Below is an example:

The Wizards Dragon Scale Shield.
When we painted in the darker details we changed our attitude in our handling of the paintbrush. The paint brush was used to "draw" the details. We used only the very point of the brush.
Below are two examples done in class of the project, the one on the left is partially done the one on the right is mostly done.

Note that the barrel on he left is pale, this is the under wash. Notice the areas of the under wash are vague and without detail.
The example on the right has detail which were added in after the under wash dried. These details were added with the tip of the brush since we were using the brush to draw.
The dark bands were blue in the under wash, then darker color was dabbed using the tip of the brush.
The leaves were drawn with a darker green over the light green. A little scarlet red was added to the green to give the shadows.
The floor was washed in blue and after it dried we went over the floor with a grey for the flagstones.
