Art of the Day: Sunday November 25, 2007


- by Aja

This week's theme: Texture

Texture is one of the seven basic elements of Art; color, space, value, line, shape, form and texture. An artist uses these techniques to convey what they want their art to express. Texture is the element that can be seen and/or felt on the surface of an art piece. Texture can also be real or perceived. Real texture is how the art feels to the touch, while perceived is how it may appear to feel. From soft to jagged, or wet to dry, one thing is sure: texture adds dimension to any art work.

Art: Reborn by Artist Aja
This print of my original painting in thick, knife painted oil depicts a vibrant, thickly painted abstract landscape in greens and blues with accents of saturated reds, yellows, peaches, purples and pinks. The bark on the trees is painted in dynamic browns, purples, greens, and grays creating a realistic yet painterly interpretation of woodland flora. Original recently sold. 16x20, 8x10, 11x14, and 30.7x24" prints available on Etsy - see below and click the Etsy logo to visit my shop for prints! -
