Crosshatching, a Clear Example

Years ago I did an illustration for a Purim invitation. I think this shows, very clearly, the different layers in crosshatching. As you can see, each darker value adds pen strokes in another direction. This crosshatching example is very stylized and abstract with its precise edges of light but you can also do crosshatching in a softer, more gradual style.
