acrylic on panel
Creating texture can be fun in more than one medium.
In oils, try scumbling, rotating brush strokes in different directions, impasto, painting knife work, dry brushing, multiple glazes, and stippling.
In watercolor you can spray,dab, lift off with crumpled wax paper, plastic, salt or other items to make interesting textures. Using multiple layers and colors with the lift off process is interesting too.
For pastellists, using different textured boards will create interesting patterns in the pastel, and using both hard and soft pastels can create tecture and linear qualities.
