GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Formal elements in painting


TEXTURE



In the vocabulary of art, the texture of a painting at one time only referred to how a painter represented the 'structure and minute moulding of a surface (especially of skin) as distinct from its colour.' (OED, 1859)
Today, the methods of painting have altered and the physical appearance of a flat work has become even more relevant. Texture, nowadays, is concerned with all the painterly techniques practised to achieve textured effects.
