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

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
