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.
I’ve added many more dots to the roof, it is a riot of color now. And, I’m having fun with many shades of purple, and blue violet using pointillism in the shadows of the bushes. This little detail has a lot of punch now, and is close to being finished.
