Goat by Emma Kaufmann

Emma first created this image and then invented different textures and patterns to fill each of the shapes in with color pencil.  This drawing may first appear to be a doodle but actually quite the opposite. Texture is one of the Elements of Art; I tell my students that all patterns have a texture but not all textures have a pattern.  There are different kinds of textures: (actual (real), invented (implied) and simulated (realistic). This is such a successful vibrant drawing.
