Dutch term or phrase: raster
Als verf al figuratief een rol speelt, dan is het als een raster in een striptekening, om net even wat schaduw aan te geven.
In a description of an artist's methodology. He uses paint and embroidery in his works. With reference to cartoon strips would one use lattice to translate raster or latticework or trellis? Thanks, Lindsay

grid
Explanation:
It is rather a strange way of looking at paint i.e. colour in a cartoon. But I would probably translate it as a grid or even skeleton on which to drape the shadow.
