About This Class

6cb0ff3a

This is an introductory level class, in a bite-size format, to build skills through drills.

Improve Your Ink Drawing with Hatching Techniques is about creating confident lines with control to express unique tones or patterns in your drawings and illustrations. Although aimed at beginners, this class is useful for building skill or getting out of a rut at any level.
There are three projects in this class.

First, you'll create a Pen Personality reference sheet. Then, using a grid, you’ll practice linear hatching, crosshatching, and contour mark-making by creating a Hatching Patchwork. Finally, using your new, ink hatching confidence, experiment with layering lines and combining marks to create unique textures and effects, perhaps using mixed media.
