In your sketchbook, draw 5 to 7 small objects from observation (not imagined) using India ink. Employ cross-hatching, stippling, or a combination of techniques. Draw one object per page. Pay attention to the categories of light as well as the manner in which you combine the techniques. All though the drawing above is of a full composition rather than individual objects, notice how the student has used the various techniques not only for their potential for creating tone but for their textural implications as well.
