Use natural materials like sand, dirt, shells, or branches. - I've always been a naturalist and love being in nature so, for me this concept automatically draws me in. I will definitely experiment with this.
texture: texture is the surface quality of an object and in this you can see the different levels of the work, some pieces pop out and some are painted with clumps so if you run your fingers over it you can feel the dried bumps of paint and the different objects in the work.
in this image the photographer has used a macro lens to capture the detail and texture in the coral, there isn't a lot of color in it so that takes away some of the distraction so we focus more on the lines and imagine what it would feel like to touch it and feel it, which creates a lot more of interest in it. it gets the viewers senses flowing
