Stippled Flower by leftinthemiddle Stippled Flower by leftinthemiddle
This was one of my favorite projects, but as you can see, it was extremely time-consuming. We were to pick a scene out of nature and stipple it with a fine Sharpie. It's so interesting how you can create value by using groups of dense dots.

I draw in stipple sometimes too - I know how long it takes. ^^;

Anywhoo - good results. Even better when you stand further away and allow the dots to blur. :meditation:

Wow, that means a lot-thank you. I agree that the results can definitely be worth the pain!

Oh man...I remember doing stippling way back in the day in art class in school. It is a beautiful technique but MAN, do I ever hear you on the hand hurting thing. It sure does take a lot of patience but the results can be worth it. I think you did a beautiful job on this. It looks so tangible and ethereal at the same time! This is competing with your "Clover" piece as my favourite thing in your gallery. You have a few pieces that make me go "If this was a print, I'd buy it!" and this is one of them.

It's just the size of a standard piece of printer paper, I think.
