• Mark making is done with multiple parallel or nearly parallel lines

These lines can curve to follow the form, and multiples sets of hatched lines might go in different directions to indicate the shifting planes of the form being rendered. Multiple sets of hatched lines going in different directions might also overlap each other to create texture (cross-hatching.) The quality of the individual lines can vary greatly, from fine to broad, from controlled to unevenly spaced and shaky, and from short to long, but the rhythmic nature of hatching can provide both a sense of order and liveliness.
