Daily Design Inspiration #12: Pointillism

31 Mar
2010

Another addition of Daily Design Inspiration…a daily dose of eye candy to highlight artworks that we find for your viewing pleasure and inspiration.

Today we are covering the ever so time consuming and must-have patience process of Pointillism. Pointillism is a technique by which one takes a pen, pencil or tiny paint brush and constantly makes small distinctive dots (points) in order to form an image.  The technique relies on the perceptive ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to mix the color spots into a fuller range of tones. Georges Seurat developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism.

This one can be deemed borderline due to it’s large dots…but full on awesomeness nonetheless.

This wouldn’t be complete without a few from the master of Pointillism, Georges Seurat…

Very neat post! I like your selection of styles and mediums….

I am an artist working also in the Divisionism style – have developed a technique using thick 3-D daubs of paint (no mixing of adjacent color) which my gallery director has termed “Daubism”. Same principles of pointillism apply, but each stroke of color is highly textural. Thanks for a great article.
