Hatching, cross hatching, stippling?
Wha, wha, what?
A ‘few’ years ago I learned there are art terms for specific types of marks, or strokes, you make on the paper while drawing, or in this case coloring.
These strokes are another way to create a shading effect that gives depth to your coloring page design elements.
This quick (slightly over 3 minutes) video by Craft Ideas Magazine gives a great glimpse showing you what these terms and a few others mean.
What did you think? Have you ever tried any of these shading ‘tricks?’ If not, test them out the next time you color!
