Adding Pointillism to the “Skating Outdoors” Painting

SkatingOutdoors2.jpg

After laying in solid color in most of the top two-thirds of the painting I begin to add a few dots. I do this to primarily to help determine values (darks, lights, and mid-tones), the colors of the dots will change many times over the course of the painting, but once the values are established they should stay the same regardless of color.

More tomorrow,
