Check Out This Exclusive Excerpt from Creating Textured Landscapes with Pen, Ink and Watercolor:Texture
- Texture is the surface quality that allows us to tell an orange ball from an orange. Although actual texture can be created using texturing mediums, most artists give the illusion of texture by using link patterns and a variety of application tools. Texturing adds the finishing touch of reality to a landscape, but must be handled with thought and skill to preserve the credibility of the painting. In this chapter, we will take a closer look at all the compositional elements listed above, for no one component can stand alone in the creation of a successful landscape. However, the main focus will be on the basic texturing techniques and the tools used to create them. Don't be afraid to try them out before moving on. They say practice makes perfect, but I experiment with textures just because it's fun!
