I was working away on the conte piece last night when I stopped abruptly. The only thing I could do was overwork the piece so I called it done. I think it came out pretty good.
My next piece will be a pen & ink stipple. Stippling is where the drawing is created from millions of little dots. There are some great stipplers on the wetcanvas site. I have called them crazy for all the time and effort they put into their works. In turn they said it is no worse than the time and effort I put into the Daisies piece. So I am going to give the stipple approach a try.
