I've been on a pointillism/stippling kick on traditional media as some of my other pieces have already shown. I figured it was perfect for the value scale and this piece was completed during a single episode of Stargate Atlantis.

Day 16: Media Pen
Based off of an old zentangle sorta combo I made a couple of years ago. I really enjoyed the gradient via dots.
Cream, Taupe, Pale Blue, Pale Olive Green, Dusky medium brown
Grabbed what colors I could from my stash.
The green is more vivid than I'd like, but it's what I had on hand. The Taupe Mist yarn is a combination of taupe and dusky medium brown. The pale blue actually appears pale blue in real life.
The hat is incomplete as there are 96 half double crochet per round and 13 rounds so far. I believe it's half complete and I will continue to work on it until it's done. This one should be warmer than the Splash of Color hat I made. Hopefully, this one won't be too big...
Inspired by the Media Pen theme, I created another to throw a watercolor wash over. I continued to play with the gradient. I love the fact that the ink work showed through the color as much as it did. The water did warp the notecard so I had to do some minimal ironing of the paper afterwards.
