Re: Pink and Purple Rose

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

Re: Pink and Purple Rose

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

Re: Pink and Purple Rose

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

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.

Re: Pink and Purple Rose

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

Re: Pink and Purple Rose

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.
