….textures on a bitter cold day
….I love texture in art pieces
There are two main types of texture in art: physical or actual texture that you can feel or the illusion of texture, created by lines and marks made on the canvas. The photos that I took at the AGO last week have actual textures that you can but probably shouldn’t touch.
….I seem to be a day late with everything so far this week
….I’ve been away for a few days and this scheduled post didn’t appear on Tuesday (my fault)
….discovered these great example of textures in architecture while walking College St. to Bloor
….from soft and fuzzy to hard and spiky
….many wildflowers in autumn produce seed pods that burst open when it gets colder
Milkweed pods start like this……
….and then the seeds burst forth like a mini explosion to release the seeds
….yesterday’s rain washed out all plans to get out and photograph textures
Today the sun came out and even though the ground was still pretty soggy and muddy in places I was very motivated to go for a walk with my telephoto lens and my iPhone.
Autumn is the best time of year to find interesting textures in nature and gardens. The textures range from brittle leaves to spiky seed heads to velvety lamb’s ear.
