THE TECHNIQUE
The stippling technique is similar to that of pointillism, where you paint images with dots - like a printer does, only printers do it with remarkably smaller dots and much higher speed and precision. The stippling technique only differs from pointillism in that it relies only on monochromatic dots. The values of shade and light are achieved by painting the dots closer together or further apart. Using this principle, it is possible to create contrast and the illusion of shapes and three-dimensional objects – or wild creatures in the case of BLACKSCATTER.
IMPLEMENTATION
These images are created on paper using fine line ink pens, with a range of tips of 0.35mm thick, to 0.15mm at its smallest. Each piece entails hours of stippling or scattering dots, while paying close attention to dot placement.
