Portland Night Skyline
This painting of the Portland night is painted in a style called pointillism. The style originates from the impressionist and post-impressionist movements. Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of pure color are applied in patterns to form an image. While this style doesn’t define all my work, I still like to explore pointillism from time to time when the subject lends itself to it (and when I have lots of time and patience).
