This is another excellent drawing. You know what i really love about the pointillism technique in this one? The actual dots are on the large side and therefor quite visible and this gives the impression of an almost primitive rendition...which is apropos and wry, since that recalls ancient native American cave drawings.

Excellent pointillistic technique! Great detail and the foreground bison are really well done. Lots of impact in the image, and really well composed with part of the flock behind those 2 who are sparing. A pleasure to view your fine work!

I really really like this piece of work. It was depth, colour, and action. I saw these fellows in Canada and I have photos. I knew they were big but I wasn't ready for the bulk of them. As you say they are HUGE is an understandment. i like the dusky air you have created. sandy

    sandysartstudio,

    yes they are behemoths and just to think once there were million of them roaming the North American continent, of the USA and Canada is amazing.

    Every color seen in the drawing is a dot . I start with the lightest color dots first and then work into the darker colors. The depth of the colors is achieved by, laying one color against another color or over the color underneath it, in doing so I get a third and forth color both visually and in reality. I was inspired to perfect the technique by some of my favorite artists: like Georges Pierre Seurat, Paul Signac, Camille Pissarro and of course his son Lucien Pissarro.

    This drawing is approximately 4?? x 9?? and took me between 14 to 16 hours to complete. I am offering it as a signed and numbered limited edition print.

    Thank you for your time in looking and writing the review your continued support of me and my artwork is very much appreciated.
    Have great day... Cheers!!!

Wonderful, and absolutely love your style you put into your Bison elements. Enjoy the movement, action they display and how cows are oblivious to this fight. They really don't care and may the toughest and strongest one win. This is the story and you painted it very well indeed. Thanks so much,
bunkie

I love the technique you used on this one Lucien. I had to look up this particular technique, I found it extremely interesting, although very time consuming for the artist. six star for patience Lol but the painting itself is worth the six.
nicely done

Hi Lucien,

You are really a master of this form art. I don't think everyone could do this or have the extreme patience to see it through. You do a great job of blending the colors and creating the imagery of your subject. This is very nicely done. I actually like to pull my head back from the screen to see the image really come together.

Great Job! :o) Helvi

You captured the Bison perfectly. Your kind of art Pointillism is extremely heard to create. in my opinion. Please don't attempts. These are not some beginning pieces.

Comment from Anne


This is amazing the way you have done it. Your pointillism work is awesome the way you work the coloring in and the amount of detail you are able to get in the drawing. I like the way you have so many different views of the buffalo. I like the way you did the ground. Just an exceptional and beautiful work of art
