Why is texture practice important?

Practicing textures is a pleasant, meditative process that helps to grow your observational skills tremendously. Texture can have more impact through variation and relief - contrasting rough areas with smooth ones.

Everything starts with an idea – the message you want to convey in a visual form. When painting texture, it is important to pay close attention to the colour values as they reveal the illusion of texture. If you understand and implement the value scheme correctly in your paintings, you will see immediate improvement.
