I'm messing around with texture by adding some new elements to my painting besides the gels, pastes and paints - I cut up an Italian newspaper and adhered pieces of that to my board as another visual element. It adds a little spice and interest in otherwise flat areas. There is no end to the amount of cool effects you can incorporate when you 'let go of the side of the pool', so to speak. The layers just keep adding up and contributing to the overall effect.
