Stippling progress

Between other projects, I've been stippling to make some inroads into this drawing. Its going to take time... But I am enjoying the process and the progress.

I have ordered some coloured inks and will be trying those out on a new drawing which I hope to have the master line drawing complete tomorrow sometime. I do have some coloured pens - Nexus - and they're fine for sketching but the larger nibs don't give me the detail that I want.

Very nice! I love stippling work for its subtle gradations and textural quality. Thanks for posting the progress pictures.

Looking good....you've got the textures building nicely!

Thanks for your comments Chris. I love the effect of stippling as well. It has a completely unique look.

Thanks Niall, slowly but surely!

Looking great Jeanette! Wish I could see it in person.

You've chosen the perfect subject for this technique -- and for WIP pictures. The detail is emerging beautifully.

Hi Jeanette. I am an artist/teacher from the south coast of Western Australia. Nice work.

Thanks Stacy. Yes, the reality is so different than an online image.

Charlene, rock surfaces really do lend themselves well to this technique.

Welcome to my blog Michelle and thanks for commenting.

Wow--that is just incredible. I can't even imagine doing this--but I love that you are! It's gorgeous, Jeanette!
