Painting Texture

It is always difficult to represent texture in oil, especially when painting ala prima. This study is composed of objects with distinct textures.

Having to simultaneously paint leather, faux fur, metal clips and a painted wooden wall forces the artist to constantly change not only the paint but the handling of the brush.
