Texture generally refers to both the feel and appearance of a surface. It can be employed to make a fine art painting seem more believable and by establishing a sensorial connection with the viewer. Blending is the ability to graduate from one color to another without obvious transitions and boundaries. By using appropriate blending techniques the colors pass imperceptibly from one shade or degree of intensity to another. In this episode, Wyland demonstrates how mixing and blending techniques can work together to create a textured look.
