Chosen by Jane – Pointillist Technique – Day 3

This weeks theme has been chosen by Jane, this explanation comes from Wikipedia..

Pointillism /ˈpɔɪntɨlɪzəm/ 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 developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism. The term “Pointillism” was first coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation. The movement Seurat began with this technique is known as Neo-Impressionism. The Divisionists, too, used a similar technique of patterns to form images, though with larger cube-like brushstrokes. 

Jane has chosen the theme this week, a technique that I have seen in paintings, but not something that I would have sever thought of trying, I am not sure that I really have got it right, but I do like the card that I have made.


I have used the Large Open Owl stencil from Dreamweaver


first tape down the stencil


I then drew around the stencil with a Black Micron Pen keep your pen upright as much as possible.


I then added my dots, with shades of brown from the new Koi Waterbrush pens 24 pack.


(sorry about the photo)


To finish off I made flags with some paper from the Perfect Prints Dark Dots pad.

I enjoyed doing the technique, so I got a bit carried away so I have a second card on my blog today.

Thanks for visiting see you soon.
