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.
This step shows quite a bit of pointillism has been applied to define shapes inl the horizontal dark area representing a crevice in the glacial moraine. I’ve given more definition to the chimneys, but no detail.
I’ve added highlights to the crevice ridges, to the gravel near the greenery, and started pointillism on the distant moraine.
