Texture

Implied:

Unknown art students from SC, graphite

Implied texture is where the actual surface of the piece is just flat and only suggests the presence of a physical texture. These drawings are on flat pieces of paper but they look as thought they would be furry animals.

Actual:

Slava Ilyayev, “Stroll in the Park” (year unknown), oil on canvas

This painting demonstrates texture by using actual texture. In a similar manner as Van Gogh, Ilyayev used heavy paint stroke and thick amounts of paint to help create depth and interest in his piece. The texture painting is actually there, it is not made to look like a rough surface.
