Chrysanthemum

This is a 4" x 4" section of a single flower from the larger 21" x 24" Chrysanthemum ink drawing. I utilized the stippling method which involves using dots to produce images. Chrysanthemums are a continuing source of fascination and study for me. I'm impressed with the complex interplay of the petals and their unique shape. Stippling allows me to capture the contrasts, density, and enhance the details of each single flower.
