Texture is so expressive that it can easily attract either positive or negative attention from the viewer. It can add to a work of art or destroy it; depending on how it is applied and controlled by the artist. There are endless ways to achieve unique texture with so many techniques and materials available. In addition to this section you will also find links to other pages for even more information about creating texture. There is no way to do texture justice in only one section due to the wide range of mediums, surfaces, and endless techniques involved in its creation. This section is however a good place to start exploring the possibilities.
