This example of crosshatching in pen & ink by local artist Grace Youngren measures 18"x12" framed. Striking black and white matting with a thin black metal frame are used to create a unique still life.
Crosshatching is the drawing of two layers of hatching at right-angles to create a mesh-like pattern. Multiple layers in varying directions can be used to create textures and shading. Crosshatching is used in pencil drawing, but is particularly useful with pen and ink drawing, to create the impression of areas of tone, since the pen can only create a solid black line.
