Texture: Julia Midkiff


Close-up of a artificial flowers and a glossy wood background. Photo by me.

The image I chose features an artificial white rose and smaller red artificial flowers, with stems and leaves attached, in front of a glossy, light-colored wooden door.

The wood in the background is very simplistic and consistent when it comes to texture. It is very smooth, no bumps or ridges on the surface, and your fingers glide over it with ease. Although some grain in the wood is seen, this does not effect the overall flatness and consistency of the surface. The white rose’s petals have almost a watercolor paper consistency; slightly rough, dry, and easily bendable. There are tiny parallel ridges that extend down the petals which is the cause of the slightly rough, papery texture. The stem of the rose is a very smooth plastic that, like the wood, has no tension or relief in the surface. The smaller red flowers have a near identical paper texture to the rose, but they have larger ridges therefore have a more wavy surface. They are also much thinner and more bendable, and the edges of the petals are slightly jagged which makes them a bit ticklish on the fingertips. The leaves that are attached to the stems have a slight waxy feel, and the stems in the leaves cause the surface to have tiny ridges that run from the center stem to the edge of the leaves in a parallel fashion. The edges of the leaves are a bit rigid and rougher than the surface of the leaf, but not quite enough to be sharp.
