Element of Art


The feel, appearance, or consistency of a surface or a substance. The every day world we live in is rich in texture. Texture is what is used when you want to add interest to something or depth.


Vincent van Gogh, for whom color was the chief symbol of expression, was born in Groot-Zundert, Holland on March 30, 1853.
