Pointillism Detail 33

This is an overview of the last three or four blog entries that featured close up details of the Kennicott original painting showing some of the mill buildings, the glacier moraine and the distant mountains. Extensive pointillism has been used on the buildings, the moraine is nearly complete, but the distant mountains are just roughed-in […]

Pointillism Detail 29

I find myself wanting to do more work to the top of the mill in the Kennicott original painting. This close-up shows most of the building painted in extensive pointillism without detail.

Pointillism Detail 28

A detail of the glacier moraine and the chimneys on the Kennicott original painting. In this view I will focus on the development of pointillism in the background glacier moraine. The buildings are painted in extensive pointillism at this point.

Pointillism Detail 27

Above is a section of the Kennicott original. I’ve chosen this detail to illustrate the progress of pointillism in the underpainted glacier moraine area of the background. The foreground has a fair amount of pointillism at this stage, and a few dots begin to define some of the crevices on the moraine.

The above detail shows the underpainting on a section of the background glacial moraine in the Kennicott original painting. At this point I have added pointillism to the trees on the distant mountains.

Pointillism Detail 25

Detail of the glacier background in the Kennicott original painting. It is time to tackle painting the glacier and moraine, it consists of mostly underpainting at this point with the exception of a little pointillism directly behind the roof tops.

Pointillism Detail 24

Pointillism Detail 23

Above is a close-up detail of a section of the Kennicott painting. Pointillism is used extensively on the buildings, what remains to be done is final detail on the windows and stairs. Detail will wait until the very end. As you can see, the background still remains mostly underpainting. More tomorrow. Gail Niebrugge, Alaska Artist

Pointillism Detail 20

Above is a close-up detail of pointillism in the Kennicott original painting. I find myself leaving the glacier moraine for later, and pursuing the lower third portion of the art work. The buildings and shadows are fun right now, and are hard to leave alone.
