Texture is the element of design that refers to how things feel, or look as if they might feel if touched.

Texture can be hard, soft, rough, smooth, slippery, sticky, scratchy, etc.

Value helps to define the shapes of objects in an image by showing the viewer what the light is doing.


Shape

Shape has only height and width.


Examples of Shapes

Shapes are defined by the space around and within them.
