    What is the Pointillism? Inspired Swap: Due June 25, 2021

    Due June 25, 2021

    What is the Pointillism? Inspired Swap

    Number of cards: 3 for 3

    Number of participants: 25 maximum

    Pointillism is a cool technique in which small distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. It grew out of Impressionism. Georges Seurat and Paul Signac originally developed the technique and were later followed by artists such as: Pissarro and Luce.

    Here are some inspired links:

    https://www.widewalls.ch/pointillism-dotted-art/

    https://mymodernmet.com/pointillism-art-georges-seurat/

    Make three different Pointillism inspired cards. The style and medium can be the same for all three or you can mix it up as you choose.

    Medium: Hand-drawn or painted, sewing, needlepoint, origami, hand-made stamp, etc. No stickers, digital or photography. Handmade art cards only. Check with me if in doubt about your medium. Make something that would be hard for you to give up.

    Use your artistic skills and feel free to use your imagination and unique style. All cards must be original (i.e., no prints or copies).
    Most of all---Have fun!!!

    Requirements:

    *All cards should be standard 3.5” X 2.5” and at least one layer of card stock.
    *Cards should be flat enough to fit in plastic sleeves.
    *Send cards in plastic sleeves.
    *Withdraw early if you can’t do the swap, late cards may be returned if they can’t be swapped out.

    Mailing and postage:

    *PM me for my address when you are ready to send cards.
    * Make sure your user name, location and swap name appear on the back of your ATC’s.
    *Include your username on your SASE.

    * International participants: I will pay postage for first 10 players. Please include a SASE.

    *US participants: Include a stamped self-addressed envelope or stamps


    Returns: When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for me and rep points for players.
    An extra card for the host is always appreciated but not required.

    Anyone want to play?

    I have played in a couple of pointillism swaps and really enjoyed them. I do find that they take quite a while to make a card (for me) so I will lurk until I have some cards that I am happy with.

    It surprised me how much I’m enjoying this technique! I already have 3 1/2 cards done - it’s really fun depicting the color values and shading.

    Yes! Yes! Yes!
    I've painted a lot of ATCs in this style. (All quickly traded...) so of COURSE I would love to join. (Off to find the TINY brushes....) BTW: I ordered a whole bunch of "disposable" mascara brushes on Amazon because acrylic paint dries so quickly on a little brush. They've been great!
