Drawing/markmaking

In the next couple of weeks we will be working on building up our drawing technique with a variety of media and mark-making.

Shading

Hatching/ cross- hatching- technique using repeating lines to create value

Below are some examples by artist Escher. Notice how his cross-hatching becomes tighter in darker areas and wider in lighter areas. Also how his hatching follows the shape of the objects.

Stippling/pointillism- technique using dots to create value

Markmaking studies (hatching, crosshatching, pointillism, shading)

Now choose one of these markmaking techniques to develop into a final piece

Choice of media (pen, pencil, chalk, charcoal, white/black/brown paper, scratch paper)
