It can be applied two ways- physical texture, which comes from layering paint or adding sand, gels or plaster- and implied texture, which utilizes the skillful application of color to fool the eye. In this illustrated guide, both methods are taught, with separate chapters addressing landscapes, seascapes, still life and portrait paintings. Two hundred color photographs show textures being applied through knives, brushes, plastic wrap, sponges, and other objects--even a toothbrush--accompanied by detailed reasoning behind the technical instructions for each action.
