Transcript of TEXTURE

What is Texture?
The characteristic visual and tactile quality of the surface of a work of art resulting from the way in which the materials are used. In the visual arts, there are two categories of texture: tactile(actual) and visual. Visual Art of Texture Tactile Visual Texture is usually the supporting factor or background to a piece of work that helps to strengthen the visual concept. What Does Texture Do? Example: The diagonal/horizontal lines help to add not only texture, but also depth and contrast creating a more visually interesting image. Tactile or actual texture is the characteristics of a work of art that are either felt or perceived visually. Visual texture is the
illusion or impression
of real texture
through its visual
representation. TEXTURE Texture can be created through the multiplication of various individual marks or shapes. Creating Texture Actual and Visual texture can inspire,
provoke, make us think, make us laugh,
make us cry, and make us see things in
ways we never would. It gives us pleasure
and that is part of what makes texture so important in art. Touch is one of our senses. Our hands and skin
are equipped with sensitive nerves that
distinguish texture. In addition to giving us
information about the world around us, our
sense of touch gives us pleasure. The size of the texture is important
Contrast is important
Seamless is usually better
Be aware of tonal values When trying to produce tone, the divided line between texture and color can become unclear to the viewer. The texture of a brick is tightly packed horizontal lines and the lines create a gray tone. This can make the color of the texture look too dark. Example of Creating Texture To change this, be aware of tonal values that dense textures like brick can create. Texture is everywhere and touch is one of our senses so that is why texture in artwork appeals to us so much! Can You Guess The Item By Its Texture? ACTIVITY Now It's Your Turn Can You Recreate This Texture? How About This One?
