High School Drawing and Painting students started off the school year with this hatching project. The class discussed ways to create Space and completed a few Hatching exercises before beginning their final project.
Break up the composition using curvy lines.
Using Sharpie, color in background space black.
Begin to add hatching wherever lines (or ribbons) overlap.
The steps are very simple, yet the results are striking!
(A few students chose to use crosshatching instead of just hatching)
