February's Challenge: An Exploration of line and texture

Updated: Mar 28

In previous challenges we explored the following elements of design: Colour, shape, value, form and mass. For this month's challenge we are going to play with line and texture. Line is an important element of design. It can define shapes, provide direction to your composition, and give character to your subjects. Line can also provide texture, and texture can help define shape and form. Although the elements of design all work together, in this challenge we would like to focus our attention on line and texture. There is a lot of helpful information on the internet to inspire you about the potential of using line and texture in your art work. Here are a few to get you started.
