1847 Homework: 2 Hour Hatching Assignment

Your homework is two make a two hour drawing of the paper bag I gave you using the methods of hatching and cross-contour lines which we have been investigating in class. Working in graphite, build up a sense of form, light, and texture by addiing layers of hatched marks upon each other. Remember to start out using the lightest grade pencil you have and slowly work up to the 6B. In the end your drawing should have a wide range of marks and values and should appear to be a fully realized work. Finally, This is a key folio assignment and should offer indications of both your developing skills with hatching/graphite and of a significant time commitment. Good Luck!

**One last reminder: remember to crumple up your bags so they have a sense of texture and surface!***
