How do you create the dark mottling or granulation in your sketches?

Thanks a lot all. You are very kind.

Doc Willie, welcome to my sketches. The granulation is from a real picture of the sun. I'm using a paper stencil where I have different ones representing different magnification from full disk to 300X magnification. Check images here.

Andre,

This is a fine sketch of the sun in H-alpha.
It is always a pleasure to see your solar sketches.

Frank :)
