The Texture is one of the most fundamental elements of three-dimensional art. It is an element that needs to be carefully considered by sculptors. The texture is related to the material used–marble, wood, clay, bronze, brass, iron. steel, or plaster, for example– as well as the process: casting, carving, construction, or welding. In addition to the material and the process, the final surface treatment offers even more textural possibilities.
During my trip, there were a few museums that we visited and there were quite a lot of paintings we got to see. But most of the museums had a no-camera policy. But a few I could click from Cathedrals and other museums (where sculptures were primary). I couldn’t capture the painter’s names though.
Something about bringing out the essence of a painting in a photograph always intrigues me. Am I doing it justice or injustice by caging them within my camera lenses ? – I am never sure.
