I’ve been back quite a few times. In this post I’ll share my crosshatching harvest.
I’ll continue the review with the jewel-like Caiaphas print (so glad the curator included it even though it is not part of a series).
Straight up and down hatching – depicting a wall vertical to picture plane. See how it deviates slightly from using a ruler.
A woodcut. Anyone should be amazed that Durer cut tiny rhombi into the wood to make this hatching.
(sorry about the fuzziness – taken with cellphone macro lens) Hmmm… These lines are not nearly so parallel are they?
And these are not even straight.
Look at how defined these hatched lines are. Could using a ruler have made a clearer depiction (it’s a rock)? I think not.
Notice how painterly this hatching is. It is as if he was depicting brushstrokes.
Picasso mocks the whole hatching process. Brilliantly so.
Hatching via squiggles.
Oops! How did Marshall sneak into this august company? Maybe he owns the website.
Dark and light lines in the same surface.
Slight amount of smudge brush.
