Accent is a brush stroke, mark or detail that is emphasized in a painting to make it stand out and attract attention. It can be used to add interest, create contrast or bring attention to a particular area.

There are many ways to create an accent in a painting, such as using a brighter or darker color, a different texture or brushstroke, or by adding a special detail.

Accents can be used to add drama and interest to a painting, and can help to focus the viewer’s attention on a particular area. When used carefully, they can make a painting more dynamic and exciting.
