Lauren F. – Lesson 7 Paintings

IMAG0724_1 IMAG0728_1

I find pointillism to be extremely frustrating because it is so time consuming.  However, I was pleased with my finished product.  The thing I found most difficult about this project was that the image I selected originally is made up of complimentary colors, which made placing complementary points next to each other within color fields more challenging.  With more time, I could have been more discerning with color placement.

I enjoy trying to use Van Gogh-esque expression in brush strokes, but find it difficult.  He had such mastery of stroke, and I find myself searching for new ways to make marks when I try to mimic him.  I was less pleased with my second painting than the first.
