Good Morning,

Today's art blog is on hatching & cross-hatching.

Hatching involves building up lots of lines in parallel to establish a mass of dark tone.

Cross-hatching allows yo to create even darker tones through layering parallel lines in different directions.

You can experiment with pen and pencil.


Please share the blog.


Take care, more tomorrow.
