1847 Homework: Hatching

Your Homework assignment for next Thursday is to draw 10 objects using hatching and cross-contour lines. Use one piece of Strathmore to draw 10 individual objects on the page. Don't draw one unified composition, but rather ten individual studies of single objects. Remember some of the techniques we practiced in class. Think about using different grades of graphite and other ways to vary your line quality. Try some different approaches, but resolve each object as fully as you can so that it contains a sense of volume and light. Choose relatively simple objects, so that you can concentrate on line quality rather than the complexity of the object. Good Luck!

P.S. Remember that I now will be initialing each Homework assignment during the critique as an indication that it was completed on time. This will then be considered when grading the portfolio.
