Drawing different textures is a wonderful way for we artists to learn about the nature of things. This time of year we have lots of wooly hats, scarves and gloves, as well as fur collars to whet our visual appetites. An artist once told me that in a college drawing class, they were asked to put piles of flour, sugar and salt on individual sheets of paper and to draw them...........wow, what a challenge! Such minute differences in weight, bulk and texture! This exercise is definitely on my "to do" list!
