There is a fine line between textures and patterns. When viewed from a distance, the shapes that make a pattern grow less important whereas a texture is formed because of the overall impression of the pattern’s surface. The texture of a leafs veins, the rough texture of a bark of a tree, surface of a pond indentations from a leaf or a twig, abrasive sand surface are all examples of textures.
