Pointillism is the Layering of Many, Many Dots

Mendenhall_3.jpg

At this stage of painting the Mendenhall Glacier I started to layer dots over most of the canvas. Doing this will allow me to evaluate the total composition, and establish color values. I’m beginning with the mid tones, and will add the darks and lights after all the mid values have been painted.
