Texture, another element of art, is used to describe either the way a three-dimensional work actually feels when touched, or the visual "feel" of a two-dimensional work.
Use of texture, along with other elements of
design, can convey a variety of messages and
Texture gives a painting a character.
Artists may show texture in their paintings by using different brush strokes, layering colors, or by putting contrasting colors such as red and green next to each other so the painting shimmers.
I'll teach you
to skillfully use texture(s)
to create contrast, stimulating the senses,
to give a composition both unity and variety.
