Dotty drawing

Taken this arrangement through a couple of translations before drawing. First a close up, then a change to threshold image in photoshop. Finally I placed the printed image on a mini light box and traced the image in ink dots only.

Final photo is just a detail shot of the drawing. I had great fun doing this, but the very smooth glossy look of the initial arrangement is lost by using this dotty technique. So whilst it is effective it gives the impression of a rough granular image, reminiscent for me of a landscape in the black and white version, and possibly not a suitable technique to use to render a smooth object.
