PRINTS absorb and reflect light about the same as silk crepe.

They may be illustrated in either pen and ink or wash media. Wash usually is the speedier method, as you can get the general effect of the design with a few strokes of the brush, whereas pen and ink requires much more time. In wash lay a foundation tone as one would for a crepe dress. Then strive for as near a likeness to the print as possible without spending too much time on minor details. It is the general effect that counts; so forget meaningless details. Do not pattern the entire surface; pick out the masses of the figure receiving the greatest amount of light and suggest the pattern here. This method lends looseness to a sketch which greatly adds to its sparkle and interest.
