Using fine overlapping planes of parallel lines of color or pencil to achieve texture or shading. Used in traditional egg tempera technique; drawing in pencil, chalk, pen and ink; and engraving, etching, and other printmaking techniques.
parallel lines of quilting that run in two directions, forming either a grid of squares or diamonds.
Technique that helps locate hidden singles
Parallel marks overlaid roughly at right angles to another set of parallel marks. Usually a sketch technique used in pencil or ink drawing.
Using crossed lines to create shading.
Building up of a tone (a shade of a color) by a series of parallel lines crossed by other lines at an angle.
An area of closely spaced lines intersecting one another, used to create a sense of three-dimensionality on a flat surface, especially in drawing and printmaking. See also hatching, stippling.
Filling Pattern made of equidistant parallel quilting lines that run in two directions, forming either a grid of squares or of diamonds.
The technique of shading by using overlapped sets of parallel lines in drawing, etching, etc. Hatching is one set of parallel lines while cross-hatching is one set going in one direction, while the other overlapped set(s) are applied offset in often perpendicular strokes.
