How to Add Texture to Drawings
On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Jacklyn Laflamme and I'm a professional artist. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to work with different textures in drawing. For example, in our first drawing, I'm going to use bricks. I'm just going to draw some quick lines and if you want to show how to get the texture in bricks. One way to do it is by just doing a bunch of little dots, so that you can show the different texture in the brick. So that’s one technique.
Another technique you can use is we’ll just show a little grout lines in the brick and that would be just to add some line work. So you're just going to add different straight lines and you can see just how quick and easy that works. So you would have your dots. I mean I wouldn’t do both techniques but for the purpose of this drawing I'm just showing you all the different techniques in one section.
Another way to do it would be to do diagonal lines, just like this. And then, you do a cross hatch diagonal line just to show another different texture. So those are just some ideas that you can do for a brick.
In this square, I'm going to show you how to do different woodgrain textures. For woodgrain, you go very light on the marker and you pull the lines down and as your coming up and down. You see what I'm doing. I'm just moving my hand ever so slightly so that I get a bit of a shaky look. Come down there and then you can go back up there and add some linework in there. And again, you can come down with the lines and you want to leave spaces where the knots in the wood would be. So you see how easy that is and it just makes it terrific effect. And then you can just continue on until you have woodgrain.
