Subsequently, one may also ask, how did Vincent van Gogh use lines in his artwork?
Van Gogh uses circular and energetic lines to create his work, varying the thick and thinness of line to create absracted elements of nature, by using large amounts of paint to create a very textured look as if the brushstrokes and paint are coming right off the canvas.
Subsequently, question is, did Van Gogh use cross hatching? Ominous pencil cross-hatching is built up obsessively, to create a dark house looming out of the landscape. Van Gogh completed over 1,000 drawings in total and regarded drawing as a basic task enabling him to grow artistically and to study form and movement. Drawing was also a means of channeling his depression.
