Analysing How Hatching works

Veronica by Albrecht Dürer

A don’t know how long ago exactly it was that I bookmarked this channel, but I have been waiting for a time to get back to looking at ink hatching.technique. Here are two videos from two people who explain their approaches to handling ink and pen.

The first video is by Dan Nelson, who in addition to doing ink illustration is a fine art painter.

The second artist is Alphonso Dunn who is also a fine artist and illustrator in pen, but also a variety of other mediums. Alphonso explains in this video the necessity of seeing shapes as volumes and conforming hatches to those perceived forms. Something to think about for hatching enthusiasts.
