Texture in a painting is the feel of the canvas. It can be based on the paint and its application or addition materials such as ribbon, metal, wood, lace, leather, sand, etc... visual and tactile. Texture in painting stimulates two different senses. This makes it a unique element of art. There are 4 types of texture in art: actual texture, simulated texture, abstract texture, and invented texture. The concept of "painterliness" also has bearing on "texture" in painting.
