Beanie Baby Pointillist Painting

POINTILLISM

Georges Seurat and Paul Signac are the fathers of the pointillism impressionist painting technique.  I have had the luck to have seen, studied and been amazed by their work in multiple museums.  I finally started using the technique about 7 years ago.  It is a slow, time consuming, technique that requires the artist to be a bit OCD.  I would have never had the patience for such a technique when I was younger.

Pointillism is not just dots.  It is based on the theory that placing dots of varying color close to each other fools the eye into blending the colors mentally instead of physically.

Below is my gallery of pointillist paintings.  Click on the pictures and blow them up to get an appreciation of the layers of colored dots that comprise each painting.  Some are available for sale.  Contact me if you are interested.

In closing, as I built this gallery, it’s hard for me to fathom all of the hours/days/weeks/months that went into these paintings making dots of color.  I have the next blank canvas sitting on my easel in the studio.  I have delusions of grandeur for this canvas.  I’m only in the planning phase at the moment.

I welcome comments and constructive feedback.  Feel free to do the social media thing if you are so inclined

 

Ciao for now
