Portrait of Albert, Cardinal of Brandenburg (The Large Plate)
Grouped lines of even width can suggest volume and shadow. The closer the lines are placed together, or if they cross each other perpendicularly, the darker the contour of the form becomes. Such a technique of creating light and dark through line is called CROSSHATCHING.
CALLIGRAPHY is also basic to decorative line such as fine handwriting. In many countries, calligraphy and painting are closely related and often utilize the same brushes and similar brush strokes.
