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!

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.

Sorry I couldn't help myself, but I really do like your work, unfortunately for me I do not have the patience for that kind of work, I just glad someone does.

IMPRESSIVE! Oh my gosh, I remember studying this technique in 5th grade art class. I was too impatient for it then, and not a darn thing has changed! LOL I have a friend who has done several pieces with pointillism and I don't know how he manages to stay sane. The art itself is beautiful, but the tedious work is SO not for me!

Amazing!!! Wow!!!!

I contratulate to you for the determination and persistance. I don't know if I could apply as much time to one piece. I would work on it for a while, put it away, then pull it out again.

You are very talented. Thanks for sharing this great piece.

My dad is a huge horse racing 'handicapper' as they call it (horse racing gambler). He would love this! This must have taken an incredible amount of time for both of those works.

I like the pointillism style and think you've done a great job. I'm also one that doesn't have the patience for that meticulous type of work but I appreciate those who do.
