Value can be created using lines. Value is how light or how dark something is. This method uses crossing diagonal lines. It is called cross hatching.

By Rembrandt van Rijn. 1650. "The shell" (an etching.) The tones reveal the rounded, conical forms of the shell including the spiral end. The dark tones around the shell also reveal that the shell is sitting on a shelf. The print is an etching, a printing technique that involves working with line, so the tones in this work has all been created using hatched and cross-hatched lines.
