Brushwork in art refers to a special textured surface and quality of handling. It describes an opaque textured paint and the particular way in which an artist handles his paint. Brushwork is independent of any representational function.

Broken brushwork refer to an area on the painting in which the brushstrokes remain discernible and independent. The brushstrokes are not smoothed or graded into each other. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
