Weekly Art Challenge


Texture
Texture is a quality that I've always admired in art.
It can be added in many ways, but it always gives
an extra depth with the layering it creates.

I love the sweet little bird with his fabric feathers and stitching!

Here it is accomplished with paint.

So your task this week, if you choose to play, 
is to create a piece of art with texture.

Digital texture is lovely and mysterious:



Above and below,
two very different mediums, but both rich with texture!


Do you regularly work with texture in your art,
or is it something new to explore?
Either way, I hope this week's theme is fun and rewarding!


I can't wait to see what you all will come up with!
Happy creating!

Be sure to click the images above ~ 
all came from amazing Etsy shops!

Great fun, as usual! Thanks, Maggie!

Michelle V. Alkerton said...

I was going to share one of my digital creations because I always love to play with textures in PSE, but I thought I'd share my crochet instead since my current single colour mosaic crochet blanket relies on the texture of the stitch variation to create the design.
Stay inspired!

Elaine Thornton said...

Hi Maggie,
I am sorry to be so last minute. I had my post ready, but then Mia was hogging my computer for hours. I just don't have the balls to claim my own importance sometimes...well, most times :)
