Painting with Pointillism 7


Partially completed pointillism on original painting “High Country”.

I’ve begun to define the distant mountains with pointillism, and have applied several layers of dots to the sky. The midground is greyed back giving a distinct illusion of a foreground ridge rolling down hill. I’m working hard to create depth in the painting at this stage. Underpainting still exists on the distant mountain to the right and the very far mountains on the left, as well as the ridges behind the lake.

More tomorrow.
