A smooth blue sheet behind a painted textured rock…
Texture is bumpy and rough. It adds colour, excitement and a sense of satisfaction like you’ve worked hard all your life. I like smooth but there is something about a rough texture that makes you want to touch it and see what is there and where did all those little holes come from?

Texture is not perfect nor is it linear, it is not calm or flowing although the bumps and grooves like those in this rock were perhaps formed with the flow of water as it rushed over it…
I remember many years ago learning how to create texture, to paint it in an image and then I taught myself to photograph it, to see it in a new light as something that is precious…
How boring the world would be without texture. The beautiful textures of our natural world and the many human textures that are so complex and yet so simple.
