Hatching Practice

Hatching Practice - student project

I've set my mind to combining delicate ink lineart and watercolours in my illustrations and that's why I'm so grateful for your courses, Jen! I so want to master this! Thank you for your hard work to provide these valuable learning materials! Feedback is highly appreciated.

I practiced the last days and tried different tools and looked what I liked and what I didn't like. I want to practice more with the nib pen, but only had a nib for writing. Drawing nibs are already ordered and on their way... With the nib I had, I struggled with the little "blobs" at the end of the lines, and I'm wondering if there's a way to avoid that.

I always am drawn to very fine lines. I already practiced stippling quite a bit and I love the level of delicacy I can reach with it (hope I expressed that right) - and it takes forever... ^^ And yes, cramp alert! However, I aim at reaching the same control and delicacy with line hatching. So far, contoured hatching is the hardest for me.

These are my practice sheets from this course. At the end I added some finished stippled pieces from earlier this year, and I want to update this post when I have a finished piece with line hatching. I only made some natural texture snippets up till this point.

Here comes the fun:
