I have been working on some Stippling projects. The first one of the Blue Bicycle I have been working on over a year. It started as a graphite drawing of the Bicycle and after some wonderful suggestions I came up with this piece of artwork.
It is on 9 x 12 Rembrandt Multi-media paper using Dale-Rowney acrylic inks and Micron pens. Some of the Stippling I did with toothpicks.
I used three different references and took bits and pieces from each of them. Also did thumb nails and then a couple of trial runs (I know there is a term for this stage but has slipped my mind - if you know let me know!!) Finally, I came up with this.
I did an ink wash in the background and then stippling over all of the positive space. I guess in this particular piece that the mortar between the bricks is the negative space.
As always critiques are welcome.
The three pieces of birds are 5" x 7" I just trying some techniques out using Micron pens and Faber-Castell Indian Ink pens.
Thank you for sharing your new works, Teri. They are really amazing.
I think you’re gifted for illustration.
The birds pieces are fabulous. The textures you’ve created in these works remind me of exquisite embroidery works.
