Artist's Technique

I am a self-taught artist - the technique that came to me naturally was founded by the famous French Impressionists of the late 18th Century. “Pointillism” is a form of painting in which tiny primary – colour dots is used to generate secondary dots. It is an offshoot of Impressionism and is usually classified as a form of Post – Impressionism. Pointillism is the specific style of brushstroke used to apply the paint. The term ”Pointillism“ was first used by Georges Seurat, followed by other Artist’s - Paul Signac and Henri – Edmond Cross. The technique of “Divisionism“ a term invented by Paul Signac, was developed to bring separation of colour dots into a section which then was applied directly onto the canvas. This method produced maximum brilliance scientifically and to avoid muddiness caused by physical mixing of colours before applying them to the Canvas.
