Hatching and Cross Hatching

Cross hatching is a used by artists to add dimension and shadows to their art. The artistic technique used to add shadow and dimension to drawn objects. It involves filling a space with at least two sets of lines, with the second set crossing over the first to create a darker effect. You can use parallel lines to fill an area with tone. By varying the spacing and width (pressure) of the lines you can make areas darker or lighter.

If it takes multiple strokes to make a longer line, try leaving smaller irregular spaced gaps between one line and the next. If you overlap the strokes often you will make irregular blotches Irregular spaced gaps add a a different dimension to your technique.

Scribble Hatching is using various lines to fill in the gaps moving your writing tool in different movements (up, down, vertical, horizontally). You can overlap circles or squiggles. This creates a rough, loose texture. To darken, add more squiggles over the squiggles. Blur your eyes to find areas of uneven value and fill these with additional marks.

 Ink artists use cross hatching often in their art. You will also see it used in architectural designs.

Featured in our local Gallery, Two Rivers Gallery

I decided to do a search of my name to see what pieces were being listed through the search engine algorithm and much to my surprised, I was being featured in the local newspaper and our local travel magazine. I was surprised since the gallery did not tell me that I was being featured. Nonetheless, here is a link to the announcement posted by Two Rivers Gallery in Chiloquin, OR. if you would like to check it out. And…here is one of the paintings that is at the gallery…Oil Pastels still life piece.

Don’t touch the flowers, they’ll die

Some new digital art I created from an original painting that was purchased. The original painting as an acrylic piece of several poppies. For this piece, I decided to give the flowers a 3D, metallic look. Prints are available for purchase in giclee canvas, acrylic, metallic or printed. Visit my Pictorem site for purchase, or to peruse other available pieces for sale.
