Dots and more dots
Impressions
Of light and color …
Inventing pixels
Long before the thought was thunk
No digital camera
No fancy electronic app
Just brushes
Paint
And patience!
Georges Seurat:
Pixelventurer par excellence
Creator of vibrant worlds
Using just
Dots and more dots

  2. “Just brushes/Paint/And patience!” Wonderful, I had not thought of it that way. I suppose I’m not the only one who might take beautiful art for granted. Thanks for this peek into the rigors of technique!
