• Texture refers to the quality of the surface of objects/media. Texture sparks our interest relative to our sense of touch. Even if we cannot actually touch the composition, our memory provides us with a sensory reaction that lends a comparative sensation.
  • Visual clues give us an idea of what various textures might be like if we were to experience "the real thing" - by vicariously experiencing various surface qualities through techniques and devices such as colours, patterns, and contrast.
  • Of course in three dimensional forms of art such as jewellery, sculpture, architecture, and textiles - to name just a few, texture is a very simple element to achieve. In two dimensional art, pattern often becomes the device utilized to achieve physical and/or dimensional attributes.
  • Texture and pattern provide visual interest to a composition.
