Big thankyou Sno
Speaking of dust, in Picasso's early days while living in rooms of that era - didn't dust and refused to let maids come in to dust. The reason being that he didn't want to stir up dust when he had oil paintings left strewn about to dry.I know. Still, I like the idea that great art might simply originate in the avoidance of having to dust.
I think stippling is a more reasonable technique than pointillism and achieves a similar (better) result.I've added some more color to this one with extra stippling, so I'm posting it again in an attempt to pull this thread back to the subject at hand. For some reason the scanner picks up the green much stronger than what it is IRL.
Thanks Arty, yes, you've seen it at the beginning of this thread but I added more dots of color. Just playing around because the painting I am working on is not cooperating.I love that leaf! It's pretty incredible! I've seen it before, but I love seeing it again. Great work Sno.
You guys are quite funny sometimes..... From a chat about pointillism (a color theory/practice that’s about 150 years old and belongs in the annals of history), you somehow moved on to talking about dust....
Why don’t you get Henry Darger (a janitor throughout his life) out of his grave to sweep away every spec of dust??.....
