Texture—the way things feel: rocks, tree bark, leaves, flower petals, yarn, string, fabric, stuffed animals, leather, bricks, rusty metal, weathered wood… the list goes on and on. An understanding of texture and pattern is essential for creating realistic surfaces. Plan to observe textures, identify the light source, evaluate shadows, build color and recreate values. Keep a record of your observations as you explore the rich textures around you and develop them with colored pencil.
