It is all about the line and stipple -

Stipple, Stipple. Stipple - dot, dot, dot...

Line and expressive line is the foundation for art. Stippling is "a process of painting and engraving in which the effect if produced by dots and points" The gradation of light and dark (form and color) is produced by different size of dots. Stipples in curved lines can suggest form and almost overlapping dense stippling indicates areas of shadow.
During the entry level Pen and Ink (Pen and Ink I) the students learn techniques to create a line, expressive line and stipple. You can see some random progress photos from recently finished Pen and Ink I class as well as from other classes, to access the photo album, please click here.
