Visual Texture

Artists are aware that we experience texture not only through our sense of touch, but also through our sense of vision. Look at the painting in Figure 112.

The glassware has been painted in a very lifelike fashion. Each facet, or cut design in the glass, looks real enough to touch. Yet, a viewer touching the surface would feel no such facets. The surface instead would feel flat. It would also feel slightly grainy rather than smooth. This is because the work was done on canvas, a coarse material.

This painting makes use of visual texture. We feel the texture with our eyes. Lookback at the realistic street scene in Figure 103. How many different textureshas the artist recorded? Which of these would feel smooth?
