  • Texture -- Can you feel it?

    Tactile Texture

    You can feel the texture.

    Wearing a fur coat.

    Visual Texture

    Object in an image looks like it has texture.

    Looking at a photo or drawing of a fur coat.

  • The fur Lady GaGa is wearing has tactile texture for her and her dog.

    Her dog has Tactile Texture to her because she is touching him.

    For us, just seeing the photo and not being able to touch them, both the dog and the coat in the photo represent Visual Texture.

    When we draw, we are creating visual texture to communicate how a garment might feel.
