Hammerhead Sharks was drawn over a 120+ hours Donna drew each stingray individually out of the layering of tiny little dots with a fine-liner pen.
Each ray took 1 hour - 1.5 hour to draw and the persistence to push through and finish this drawing is truly remarkable.
With each Hammerhead Shark being different the detail is impressive and can only be admired in the larger size listed. The details are lost on anything smaller.
Each one of Donna’s illustrations are created free hand, singularly made from the layering of dots - hundreds upon thousands of tiny dots and countless hours. Donna credits her unique talent for the technique known as ‘stippling’ or ‘pointillism' to achieving such intricate drawings using just a fine liner. Donna’s pieces take on discipline, focus and a life of their own. Some designs have been styled using hand painted watercolour images.
