Strokes Each line you make in colored pencil drawing is important—and the direction, width, and texture of the line you draw will contribute to the effects you create. Circular Move your pencil in a circular motion, either in a random manner or in patterned rows. For denser coverage, overlap circles. You can also vary the pressure throughout for a more random appearance. 32 Linear It may be more comfortable for you to work in a linear fashion: vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, depending on your preference.

The closer the lines are together, the denser and darker the color. Crosshatching is laying one set of hatched lines over another but in a different direction.
