Cyndi at Fort Desoto
I am continuing to experiment with pointillism as a technique along with an impasto type of paint application. You can see that there is very little variance in the brush strokes the majority of shape is achieved through shifting of color and tones. Color and the shadows formed by the thickness of paint are extremely important in setting the overall tone. My intention was to capture the experience and emotion of the moment any realistic representation of an actual place is secondary. On the surface the painting is about an idealistic place not a real one.
Ok what next? I really don't know I guess I'll have to think about it.
