One Dot at a Time
I was introduced to pointalism in my high school art class, and continue to use the technique within drawing textures with pencil and adding depth to watercolor. Using pencil to sketch the idea very lightly, we layer fine-tipped marker dots, gradually blending colors. I remind the students that you cannot erase mistakes. This is an additative process. Make darker lines by placing the dots close together. I usually work small;10X10.
