Yann Tiersen: Watching Lara (piano)
Texture, another formal element of art, is used to add interest and suggest depth.
It describes either the way an art work actually feels (tactile) when touched, or the visual "feel" of a two-dimensional work.
It can be simulated by the artist and this work is an example.
There are four types of texture in art: actual texture, simulated texture, abstract texture, and invented texture.
When planning a work of art, the importance of texture should be considered in relation to the other formal art elements, such as color or line.
When used skilfully, texture creates contrast, stimulates the senses, and can give a composition both unity and variety.
