Spotted Rocks Finished

Finished the Inukshuk. I really like how this turned out, the rocks look rough but smooth at the same time.

If I didn't have so many other pieces of art to finish I would probably just start another pointillism piece. But the list of art I need to do is longer then my leg, so another ink piece will have to wait :( And I do still plan on doing a big bird piece in this style, but that will definitly have to be one that I work on while I have a few other things on the go.

Close up showing the dots. The one thing I miss about using a metal nib now that I usually use ink pens is that with the metal nib you get a bumpy texture to the paper. I think it really helps give the illusion of texture. But the metal nibs do have a habit of blowing up and getting ink everywhere. Many a piece of work was ruined like that (plus numerous shirts and even a bra when the nib snapped off and the ink went everywhere. I think it even got up to the ceiling :p)

And a framed version. The little blue mat inside could be any colour really, I think the grey blue works well though.

Excellent, I really don't think I could do this, it would P me off. however, it looks really effective. As Vic says, look great in the mount.

Amazing drawing Jennifer! I know I would never have the patience to do all those dots! You really mastered the technique here with that incredible rock texture.

Oh, and I like the new blog background color! Much easier on my old eyes :-)
