Thank you, ladies. This took me about 20 hours to complete since the whole thing was stippled including the background.

Having done this kind of work myself, I know this would take many hours - and be a labour of love!

It's a beauty Charissa :D

I bow to your patience in being able to create such a lovely delicate rose in this technique. It's a keeper for sure!

Charissa, it is gorgeous! I'd never have the patience for that...

Thank you, ladies. I find stippling very soothing and it takes hours but I don't mind the time I put into these.

Wow Charissa, I love the colour and the delicacy of this rose. Precious.

Absolutely wonderful Charissa, and I sure do know the amount of time that goes in to these stippled pieces. It's great to see you posting. :clap: :thumbsup:

charissa, shame on you for not sharing this with the P&I forum...tsk, tsk...:p

Val, I know you know how long it takes to do these pieces. I have about 20 hours in this one and it is 6x6".

mud, I went through a period where I was doing nothing but flowers so I figured that P&I had enough of them...lol

Beautiful pointilism rose. Patience personified. I know how long it takes to do these as it was one of my assignments when I taught school.

Beautiful soft color in this Charissa! I'm afraid my purple comes out too dark, but yours is perfect!

Thank you, Pat.

Dan, coming from you that is a compliment indeed. I love your work in color so decided to try my hand at it.
