Chosen by Jane – Pointillist Technique – Day 5

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. 

Today our card comes from Jane the Flower Girl and the one who is responsible for the theme!

Jane has used Bold Blooms Ruby one of her Spring 2015 release, stamped in black

and then added colour with brush pens in purple and grey. Start with the lightest colour and get darker, use a brush tip and keep the pen upright to get nice round dots.

A touch of Stickles finishes off the image. The background paper is from the Perfect prints pad Oxford.

Jane has this fella the Decorative Dove on her Flower Girl blog blog too.

Thanks for visiting see you soon!
