"Centerpiece" - 3

am still on this, but the fine stippling is very slow going, in part because with a nib pen, unlike a tech pen, there is the problem of 'bloops', thus needing to put enough ink on the nib to mark, but not too much to shake a drop off - which have had two so far, more than want, as one can yet be seen... this means just a little ink on the end, and many returns to the bottle - MANY returns... once it gets to the deeper shading, there will not be as much the problem, but the light end is more the stickler...
