View of Benevento, Edmund Kanoldt A beautifully complete, but still economical, graphite drawing by the 19th century German landscape artist. I love the way he has handled the tone and textural variation in the distance, middle ground and foreground — particularly his gestural definition of the trees. Pablo Jurado Ruiz is a Spanish artist and creative director who works in the ink drawing technique of stipple, in which hundreds of tiny dots are laid down in carefully controlled ways to create areas of tone. His website features sections for the individual drawings, with detail crops and often photos of the work in progress, allowing you to see how the patterns of dots are laid down (presumably with a technical pen style marker, like a Pigma Micron or similar).

(For more on the stipple technique, see my recent article in Drawing magazine, and the related post linked below.) [Via Artist A Day]
