Hey,

At the suggestion of one of the mods, I'm cross-posting these two images here for you to have a peek at.
I recently started stippling and these two were my first serious attempts.
These were both done on a half sheet of Stonehenge paper, which is large for me. The Trillium is on cream and the Magnolia is on grey.
These were too large for my scanner, so I had to photograph them.
Please c&c at will, and thank you for looking.
Enjoy.

Tim

Gayle, Deb, Elaine........thank you for the comments.
These were fun to do and I'm sure I'll be doing more images from the botanical genre.

Thanks,
Tim

I can't imagine the patience it took for these. Trilliums & magnolias are both favorites of mine & you've done a beautiful job on both.

Thank you all so much. I appreciate your comments.
It is much slower than graphite for me, but it has such a distinct look to it and holds different challenges.

Thanks again,
Tim

Beautifully done. When you decided to try a new technique you sure jumped in with both feet (and made a splash!). Half sheet of stonehenge, oh my!

Tim,
What patience you have to work with stippling as a technique. WOW!

These are both beautifully drawn and finished with the stippling. Very, very nice work. :thumbsup:

I like these. The magnolia bud appears to be the Japanese Magnolia that blooms before the leaves come? Very pretty.

Huge! When you say half-sheet ... is that half Imperial or A2 size .... or slightly less than either?! I'm imagining about 15" x 22"?
Whatever!

Lovely drawings both - really well observed and the magnolia is particularly delicate ........ nice! :D

Welcome to the forum Tim - in case I haven't said that before! :lol:

Thank you all again very much. It's very inspiring to receive so many encouraging remarks.
I'm not sure what type of Magnolia bud it is, Jeanette, sorry.
Maureen, 15X22 is about right. I don't know what A2 or Imperial sizes are, but whatever size they offer over here in the 'States is what I've got. I received a large bag with 10 of each color as a gift for Christmas. Thank you.

beautiful work and fantastic patience stippling them - it has been worth it though as the final result is excellent - they both look really delicate!
