Textural Gradient Definition | Psychology

A texture gradient is how our eyes see a slow change in how objects look the closer they get, going from fine to coarse. It’s a monocular cue, which can occur in either or both eyes, showing a change in how an object looks. If they’re close, they appear coarse, the farther away they get, the less distinct and denser they become. Think of an old photograph of a large crowd, or an amazing table full of awesome food that’s somehow huge and still full of deliciousness.
