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.
