A close up detail of pointillism painted on the foreground grasses. You can see many, many layers of color at this stage. I’m concentrating on making the foreground beautiful close-up as well as from the distance. A large variety of values and hues have been added as dots to form the grass.
The above photo shows how the grass appears from a distance,I’m beginning to achieve the look I’ve been seeking. I need to step back and evaluate the background especially the upper third of the painting. It looks a little weak to me. This 48″ x 60″ canvas is quite a challenge, and is taking a huge number of dots, as well as a lot of time. Fun, though.
