    for Seurat

    I was watching a BBC special on impressionists and loved the section on Seurat, this piece was inspired by the close ups they did of several of his works.. while it is not directly a pointillist work it owes a lot to his ideas...

    Hi Gary...Though it may not be directly a pointillist work, by taking inspiration from Seurat. What is more important to me is from the inspiration, you have put your sense of imagery and style into this piece and in doing so made this a wonderful tribute to the man.
    Take care dear friend,
    Steve

    Seurat was brilliant with all those dots coalescing in to a vibrant light filled painting. The thought of him standing there going dot, dot, dot, dash, dash, dash makes my head spin.

    Yours is so lively and colourful too Gary. Very nice!

    So beautiful. It really see how that TV show has inspired you. Indeed, this painting gives me an impressionist feel. Really love how you come up with these beautiful color palette and it works perfectly in your design. Awesome piece. Another one of my favorite of yours

    Kaboom! In your face, George Seurat!

    Because of your palette, you remind me a little more of Paul Signac's painting, Grand Canal, Venice, 1905

    I'm still blown away that Seurat only lived to age 31 yet made such an impact.

    All that aside, it's a very easy painting to look at. I like the variety of marks in ways that almost give it a perspective as if an explosion is coming at us. It's a neat metaphor for an art movement exploding onto the scene, with the bits being like his dots all detaching as if separate.

    Robyn , yes his particular style requires much for patience than I possess yet his ideas of color and how they act in relation to each other is still a point of great interest to me.

    D Akey I am impressed that you found that painting from Paul Signac!... how on earth did you find it? you are right his colors and mine and even the size and spacing of the dots and dashes are more similar. I am familiar with his work of course but think I will have to revisit his paintings now!..

    thank you justjean , it was a little different choice of colors for me but it came out well enough.

    thanks kenmo I wanted to paint something that stretched my color choices a bit in a new direction but more high key and uplifting..
