Explore the complexity and texture of your value studies with three different types of mark making. Instructor and sketch artist Paul Heaston demonstrates how to master the multidirectional basket-weave method, which provides a unique and solid quality. Next, watch as seemingly aimless scrawls add interest to negative spaces with gestural mark making. And finally, Paul explores the texture created with stippling, which is created by a series of tiny dots, often added for incredible detail and deep, velvety textures.
