Pointillism is notably associated as a form of art in which the use of tiny dots is used to generate a picture or image. This can be shown in various mediums, monotone, or colour.
I doodle using dots and often take it that step further and produce images, but only using black ink. I have tried using colour and found the whole experience way , way too difficult. I love the tones that I produce simply by using one colour, mainly black on white.

Pointillism technique is often mentioned within the Neo-impressionism art movement of the 1880's because it was the dominant technique used by artists such as Georges Seurat. A great example of this was "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte"
My work is less complete, often just snippets of images although I did re-create my parents barn (before they converted it!) using pointillism as my main technique.
