For the second part of my first assignment they ask us to use the stippling technique on a flower, stem and leaf. I’ve never stippled before, and after practicing with pencil and pen I decided that pen was much neater, much cleaner and gave a much better result!
For a new technique, I didn’t want to rush straight in to the final piece (something that I am very prone to doing!) I chose to draw a lily for the final stippled piece, so I practiced with a lily also.
Here is my first study, unfinished to show my progress: (apologies for the poor photographs)
I shall post the final stippled piece, along with my thoughts as to how it went and tips on stippling, in my next post!
