Pointillism Horse

This was a piece I did for a friend a long time ago. It is in their private collection. I am still happy with how it came out.

Wow, this is neat! I've never heard of this technique before. Can you explain it a little?

Pointillism is basically a picture comprised of nothing but dots. The whole picture is comprised of dots of different sizes. The effect can be amazing in some instances.


Here are a couple of close-ups and a whole picture shot of one I was working on (in the next post). I made the mistake of leaving it on my desk and my children decided to "help!" lol My fault for that one.







I am debating on what my next piece should be. If I should stick with the horses or go with something else.

Wow, that is amazing! Placing all those dots must be really time consuming!

Yeah it is! lol It tends to make me cross-eyed after a while too. It is really fun to see what the picture is shaping up like though. I tend to take a lot of pictures of it as I am doing it so I can actually compare them and see what my progress has been.

I did a drawing like that once and probably will never do one again. I don't have the patience for pointillisom. Kudos to you for keeping at it and producing amazing work at the same time.
