• There are two types of artisitc texture - the first is tactile, the second is visual.
  • Tactile texture can actually be felt - regardless of the artform. Even in painting (such as when the painter utilizes a very thick technique referred to as impasto), there is a rough, three dimensional surface that can result.
  • Note how in the example, the artist has used short, thick strokes to build up paint to create texture (tactile). Each stroke has edges and ridges that are apparent to the viewer's eye.
