Vive le pointillisme
I've done drawings using dots to create halftone types of shading effects before, but I'd never tried pointillist techniques in painting, so I thought I'd play around with the idea. It seems very odd to "publish" a work in an early stage of completion, but I already mentioned I'd try to show some examples of projects on which I'm currently working. So here's a detail from the painting. While I'm not sure where this concept is leading me, I think pointillism might be something to try in purely abstract paintings.
