View Full Version : Stippled Pen & Ink Florals.

08-06-2007, 05:40 AM
Like a few others in the P&I Forum, I love to do Florals by stippling in ink. I also enjoy painting Miniatures and SFA (as well as the larger paintings), so here are a few that I have completed in the last 3 or 4 weeks. Each one measures 3.5x2.5", on Premier Watercolour Paper 216 gsm, with coloured Micron and Triplus pens.

All C&C very welcome.

How long do these take Val? All are lovely. Your patience is well rewarded with products like this.

Val - am i right in thinking that is ACEO size? I would imagine these would sell like hot cakes - they're really lovely.

I'm going to have to go over to the pen and ink forum and find out more about these micron pens.

Robyn -- Thanks so much. I'm glad you like the Roses, as I love to pen them.

Carol -- Thanks so much Carol. They take about 6 hours to pen each one, usually done over a period of two or three days. I find them the most relaxing thing of all to do.

Katherine -- Thanks so much. Yes, they are ACEO size, and I do sell them on ebay, and all that I've done have sold. I currently have a Red Rose (not pictured) and the Orange Tulip on ebay, and the Tulip has a bid, and the Red Rose has Watchers. I have to get busy and do some more.
It's a great way to acquire an Original piece of someone's art without spending too much.

Val, those stippled roses are very lovely. I looked at them closely to see if any of it was a wash, but looks like every speck was stippled. Right?

Can someone explain AECO size?

Very original style.

Great work!
It must have taken a long time to do:)

Jeanette -- Thanks so much. Yes, every speck is stippled. No washes, no strokes with the pen -- all teeny weeny dots.

Elian -- An ACEO is an Art Card. You know how enthusiasts sell and trade Baseball Cards and all types of Trading Cards -- well, Art Cards are sold or traded in the same way, and are the same size as Baseball Cards etc. It's a wonderful way of collecting a little piece of other artists' art for a very inexpensive price. There is a special Category on ebay for ACEOs.

Gilberte -- Thankyou so much. This is one of my very favourite mediums and techniques.

Marianne -- Thanks so much. Each of these little pieces takes about 6 hours.

My goodness! What patience you must have. I like the coloring in the 3rd one best.

Val - I also really impressed with the colours you were using and have been off fidning out all about Pigma Micron pens since you posted these.

Somehow I missed those. Wow what a lot of work, I particularly love the tulip.
