Something I posted originally under the "Sun! Sun! Sun!" Project. Very simple but it is one of my first attempts aka experiments at stippling. I really enjoy the work I see here with that technique and thought I would play with it just a little bit.

Thank you all for your kind comments!

seejay: LOL! I had thought of making the sun red and black or red and blue but then I said, "Why not?" Also changed the position of where I had intended to put the sun. Ah well, I may try this again with different colored suns....

Again thanks all for looking on and taking time to comment! :)

jjsangel: Thank you! :D I think the water and sand are actually what I enjoyed the most.

That water looks fantastic, so does the beach. The black sun makes it look like another planet, though! Kinda creepy-cool!

see they're easy... its just a bunch of dots. No sweat at all. Looks great. Keep up the good work.

Prairie painter: Thank you! I had never really thought how funky that black sun looks! It is different if nothing else. For whatever that's worth... :)

Gutshot: Thanks for looking on! :) Yes the dots are really not that hard but very time consuming. The effect is just amazing though. I've seen such good work here with stippling. I definetly want to try this technique more.
