Painting with Pointillism 1

HighCountry2.jpg

Acrylic underpainting for “High Country” original painting.

First I sketch the subject with pencil onto the painting surface, in this case a 22″ x 48″ Sintra PVC plastic board.  Then I begin to quickly apply underpainting, establishing the light and dark areas and base colors that will show through beneath the hundreds of dots of pointillism that will be applied during the course of the painting.

More tomorrow.
