Day 21: “Something You Want”. As a continuation of my ‘stipple streak’, here is my drawing for today.
(Correction: In a previous post, I referred to stippling and pointillism as being two names for the same technique. They are in fact distinct techniques in that stippling uses one color to produce tone, and pointillism uses dots of multiple colors to simulate blending.)
I’m still not sure that adding in the red was a good idea – it seems to have made a lot of the tone in the shading disappear.
When my wife first saw this drawing, there seemed to be some confusion over what it was (although she saw it sideways), so if you’re having trouble, it’s a collar and tie.
And no, I don’t want a tie – not a red one and definitely not a pink one. I want a job. An office job. Simple.
