Stippling

Stippling, Themes in Art

Stippling is the technique of creating an image, pattern, or gradient through the application of many small dots. Stippling is remarkably effective at communicating volume, since changing the density of the marks can create gradients can be created that imply form without also prescribing texture. This is distinct from Pointillism, where mark density is usually consistent, and forms are distinguished using color.
