Line

❖   There are three ways to use lines to create value:

    ❖   Cross-Hatching
Stippling


❖   Dots closer together make
    darker values.

❖   Dots further apart make
    lighter values.

Hatching

❖   Parallel lines

    ❖   closer together, or
        thicker, makes a darker
        value

    ❖   further apart, or
        thinner, makes a lighter
        value
Cross-Hatching

❖   Lines that criss-cross each
    other.

    ❖   The more, or the
        thicker, the lines, the
        darker the value.

    ❖   The less, or the thinner,
        the lines, the lighter the
        value.
Self Portrait with a Cap, openmouthed (1630) Rembrandt
