The past few days, feeling a lack of focus, I decided to revisit exercises in the basic elements of form: color, texture, pattern, light.  This was discovered in an alley on a “texture day”.

The acid test is whether you, the viewer, can actually “feel” the texture through your eyes? Or does the image instead reference an idea of what the subject is supposed to feel like? (It might be easier to evaluate at the largest size.) I’d be curious to hear, either way.

  1. Hi April,

    Very intriguing, reminds me of the aboriginal paintings in caves. The colours are really complimentary.


  2. Archaic, primordial and touching on a deep level. I am intrigued by the power of those “symbols”.


  3. Thank you both for your feedback!
