Pointillism in a Variety of Settings

Pointillism is a unique method of using small dots of paint that collectively form a subject. It was developed in 1886. Click Wikipedia for further detail. With the onset of digital art, it is a style that can be replicated. I have created a few art prints with this technique and have shared some of them in the past. Today, I wanted to share 5 prints where I used this technique. The prints represent a variety of subjects and I thought it was interesting to show all five to see how this technique works with the different perspectives. Pointillism generally softens and lightens almost any subject it is applied to.

The first two prints are fall based subjects.

The Tracks by the House

The Tracks Through the Trees

The setting in the next print switches gears from these subtle fall colors as it’s a farm setting in Iowa during the winter months. No snow, just earthen tones.

The Family Farm

The next print takes us to a mountain meadow lake near Whistler, British Columbia. The color mixture (still softened) brings in natures basic colors

The final two prints move us into the heart of Denver, Colorado with two famous landmarks in downtown Denver. The first one is the D&F Tower which sits on the 16th Street Mall. This pedestrian mall connects the State Capital on one end of downtown to Union Station on the other end with lots of office buildings, stores and hotels in-between.

This technique creates a very unique visual experience.

Thoughts? As I have said before, everyone reacts to visual art techniques and looks differently, so I am not in the least offended by opinions.
