Hatching



We can create value by using linear
            hatching.

The closer the lines are, the darker the

  6. 6. Crosshatching Crosshatching uses layers of hatching placed at an angle. Usually the 1st layer is vertical, the next horizontal and the next diagonal.
  7. 7. Contour Hatching The direction of line helps suggest contours. When crosshatched, they suggest cross-contours. Hatching which follows a contour can also help to make objects appear more 3D.
  8. 8. Scumbling Scumbling uses layers of small scribbled marks to build up value and texture. Varying the direction adds more interest than a simple circular scribble.
  9. 9. Random Hatching Random hatching uses layers of short, straight marks. Various textures result depending on whether these short hatches are applied vertically, at right angles, following a contour or at random angles.
