  1. Pointillism & Georges Seurat

  2. Georges Seurat • Born in 1859 in Paris, France • Founder of Pointillism • Died of a sickness in 1891 at the age 32. • Influenced art and artists with the great style he created in just a short career. Georges Seurat

  3. Pointillism • Pointillism is a style of art using only dots. • Georges Seurat, preferred the name Divisionism. • Art critics gave it the name Pointillism. “La Parade” by Georges Seurat

  4. 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 “The Eiffel Tower” by Georges Seurat

  5. “The Papal Palace” by Paul Signac (1863-1935) Paul Signac is another great pointillism artist

  6. “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat Took Georges Seurat 2 years 3,456,000 dots (one at a time!)

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. Objectives & Rubric • OBJECTIVES • Optical Blending using juxtaposed dots of color.
