Cross Hatch and Watercolor Illustration

classes malka watercolor Apr 05, 2021

Watercolor painting is beautiful in and of itself, but let's explore a way we can enhance it with another lovely technique, cross-hatching. Cross-hatch illustration also stands on its own in its beauty when done right, but I like to use it as a way to make my paintings pop off the page. Incorporate these two styles and mediums in to one for a work that is detailed, colorful and immensely satisfying. 

Topics Covered

  • Cross-hatching techninque
  • Watercolor pencil usage
  • Learning to see and recreate light & shadow
  • Combining cross hatch and watercolor to form a unique composition
