Hatching is a highly effective way of adding limited shade to a sketch / drawing. Hatching lines are normally at an angle, between 60 to 45 degrees. They should be fainter than the outline of the sketch.

1. Draw the outline of the cup. A soft leaded pencil (2B) can be used for the outline. You may prefer to use a hard leaded pencil(1H). This is a personal preference. Broad and fine felt pens can also be used.   By V.Ryan
 
 
 
2. Add the darker lines by applying more weight. Then broaden the lines with the pencil / felt pen. You may prefer to use a felt pen for the dark broad lines.   By V.Ryan
     
3. Add hatching to the internal part of the cup. The shading is usually fainter than the outline.   By V.Ryan
 
 
 
4. Add further hatching, but this time short lines are drawn. They reinforce the ‘lip’ of the cup. They are drawn all the way along the rim of the cup.   By V.Ryan
     
5. Draw further hatching lines on the right hand side of the cup. This adds to the 3D effect.   By V.Ryan
 
 
 
6. Add shorter hatching lines to the right hand corner, near the handle.   By V.Ryan
