I did not get exactly what I wanted here but its close and I think it turned out pretty well. It was actually better in a single color, but this is nice too. The weave is ok but needs a better development if I am going to make the most of it. The point was to take advantage of the accidental play of primary colors against each other when heavy brushstrokes are left behind and the next application of color does not fill in all the valleys. Here the valleys were left empty on purpose to explore the possibilities. I will try this again. Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions. I would apologize for the glare but in this case it highlights the texture. The snippet may actually be the better composition. Oil on canvas. 18x24

Re: Texture

This IS great texture, so aptly named, all across the surface.

Re: Texture

I suspect it looks even better in person without the glare. I like the opposing visual textures between the back and foregrounds. Seems like a good concept to explore further to me. Always interested in textural painting.

I will suggest using another dark next time unless you need the non-chromatic black to convey something dramatically negative.

Comments and critique actively sought and much appreciated!
