Pointillism1

Pointillism

  • a style of painting in which small distinct points of primary colors create the impression of a wide selection of secondary and intermediate colors

  • When viewed from a distance, the eye blends the dots, in a process called optical blending.

  • Even though no orange paint was used, red and yellow create the effect.= COLOR THEORY/MIXING

Pointillism creating value

Pointillism Creating Value

  • To simulate darker areas

    • The denser, tighter the spacing of the dots, the darker the tones will appear.

    • Make larger dots creating darker dots

    • Draw dots close together

    • Using complementary or split-complementary colors

    • Juxtaposed dots of multi-colored paint

  • To simulate light areas

    • Make the dots finer

    • Use a soft touch when making dots.

    • Place the dots farther apart form one another

    • Using complementary or split-complementary colors

    • Juxtaposed dots of multi-colored paint


Practice

Practice

  • In your sketchbook divide a piece of paper into 4.

  • Draw 4 different drawings of your choice.

  • A scene or landscape will be better. Think about background, middle ground, and foreground.

  • When done, bring to Mrs. Ewy to get one approved.


Directions for project

Directions for Project

  • Get a 10x12 piece of paper from the back table

  • LIGHTLY sketch the still life in front of you WITH PENCIL

  • When done drawing , get your sketch approved.

  • Once it’s approved (which means it doesn’t need any corrections), you may start POINTILLISM.

  • Did the brush or q-tip in the paint.

  • Use color of paint "dot" in the line design, one dot at a time.

    EXAMPLE – if you need it to look orange, use dots of red & yellow.

  • Apply paint in a dot like pattern, using juxtaposed dots of multi-colored paint to "dot" in the rest of the design, one dot at a time.

  • The dots are put closer together to make it darker, farther apart to make it lighter
