Pointillism

As a new artist it is important to learn different brush strokes. This includes Pointillism This will help make your painting have texture and depth adding another dimension of fun to your art. (or even an experienced artist who has picked up the habitual pattern of using the same easy broad stroke should remember to disperse pointillism in their pieces)

So what is Pointillism?

 is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image.

Georges Seurat and Paul Signac created this technique in 1886, moving away from Impressionism. The term “Pointillism” was coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the these artists, but is now used readily by artists. The movement was started by Seurat and was called Neo-impressionism. The Divisionists used a similar technique of patterns to form images, though with larger cube-like brushstrokes.

Pointillism is similar to color printers as the dots are printed on paper or canvas using only four colors cyan, magenta, yellow and black. The colors are not preblended but nozzles which are programmed know which color to apply for the final picture. Pointillism is very unlike traditional painting where the colors are mixed first on a pallet prior to applying or mixed on the canvas while colors are wet.

The majority of Pointillism had been done in oil paint. But any paint can be used as long as it does not run or bleed. Thicker paints are preferred.

Use any of the photos on this page to try out Pointillism art. Remember to focus on fun! Focus on the journey of creating! It’s the creating something out of nothing and leaving all worries behind which is the challenge. If it feels hard, your trying to hard. Some artists use a big paint brush so that they won’t focus too much on details. Try this sometimes.

When using photos as a reference for painting a picture, focus on having FUN. Focus on relaxing. Don’t worry about getting all the details and color matching perfect. This is judging yourself harshly. Perfect paintings come from experts who have been painting for years or professionally.

I was surprised since the gallery did not tell me that I was being featured. Nonetheless, here is a link to the announcement posted by Two Rivers Gallery in Chiloquin, OR. if you would like to check it out.

Fine Art Spot: Art Together

The three sisters (Christine, Grace and Aurelia) get together on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 1:30  for “Art Together”. It’s been a nice opportunity to do art across the nation (Hawaii, Texas and Oregon) through Facebook Rooms of Fine Art Spot: Collective Group of Artists.  We usually do art for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours and work on the group’s weekly prompt, or whatever the artist desires to work on. We’d like to invite anyone who might be interested in doing art.  It’s a private group, so you’ll have to join the group. Here is the piece of art that I completed this week for the challenge “Letter I” He is called, “Masked Indian“. Would love to have you join us!

June 20 Title- God is with us even when we feel Lonely

Today’s scripture Lamentations 3:17 comes at the end of a passionate expression of sorrow —an anguished cry to God. The speaker of this lament has “forgotten what happiness is” (He feels trapped, unheard, desolate. Yet despite his pain, he finds hope in recalling what he knows about God. 

Prayer

Many people finding it hard to wait on your timing, Lord. Help me believe that you are going to deliver me.

Lamentations 3:17 Read in the ESV, ICB, and ASV. 

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.”

Lamentations 3:22-25 ESV

 

“The Lord’s love never ends. His mercies never stop. They are new every morning. Lord, your loyalty is great. I say to myself, “The Lord is what I have left. So I have hope.” The Lord is good to those who put their hope in him. He is good to those who look to him for help.”

Lamentations 3:22-25 ICB

 

“It is of Jehovah’s lovingkindnesses that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. Jehovah is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. Jehovah is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.”

Lamentations 3:22-25 ASV

Question and Meditation. 

Do you find it hard to wait on gods timing.? Ask god to Help you believe he will deliver you. Ask God to use his Word to give you hope.
