Lucien,
A wonderful picture full of action & hidden sound in my minds ear I can hear the thunder of hooves & see clouds of dust rising as this heard approaches & passes us. Wonderful choice of colours used & their application by tiny dots o create this image is both expert & life giving to the animals you have drawn.

Having recently started trying my hand at pointillism, I truly can appreciate this drawing. Not only is it beautiful from a distance, but has its own unique fascination close up. One thing that strikes me is how you created depth by using more dots in the fore ground and fewer as we move deeper into the image. Thank you for showing me such a wonderful example of excellence in the technique. cainse

    cainse,

    thank you for having taken the time to look at this piece & the support it is appreciated.
    Yes, I was trying to show the effect of dust and then the form of the additional animals as seen through that haze the dust would have created, I thought that spacing and opening up the dots would create that effect.
    I really like the pointillism technique and the challenges it presents as you try and create textures using just the dots.
    Thanks again fro the time and critique.
    Have great day... Cheers!!!

    jesuel,

    Thank you for the high praise in how you rated this drawing.

    The challenge was the creating the many shapes and then showing them in less details and still capturing the motion/ momentum of a stampede.I like the colors and the earth tone with the various shades of oranges and browns, the combination add depth and perspective to me.
    I liked the results created by the limited pallet.

    Thank you for your time in looking and writing your critique of my drawing it is very much appreciated on all counts.
    Have great weekend,

Comment from cleo85


This is one of your very best, Not only that you brought pointillism to perfection [again], you gave each of the animals in views has individuality. In the background, defused haze and dust, seem many more animals following the leading group. Most amazing is that you have given the impression of dust in the air; kicked up by hundreds of racing animals. It is not photo realism, but the situation is realistic, just as I have seen them in Hayden Valley [Yellowstone].

    cleo85,

    Thank you for the high praise in how you rated this drawing. People that have seen the drawing have offered me photo's they have taken of the Bison at Yellowstone, in hope I will use them as t reference next tine I draw them, which is to me very high praise of the work I do. I will be posting more in the future.

    You're most welcome.
    I agree. The leak of detail and the colors is what make this picture special. That is what gives the impression of dust created by hundreds of stamping hoofs. The amazing thing is that the viewer dos not registers a leak of detail, due to the individuality of the animals in good view.
    Cheers
    Have a nice week!

This is a very interesting piece of work. I kept looking at the larger picture to get the full effect of the pointillism. This is a masterful work. Thank you for sharing. You have a gift.

Another great painting. Amazing color, and great details. Good texture, and great use of the techniques of pountillism. I like the bison herd moving at fast pace. Nice composition and excellent shading.

Comment from Anne


You sure do have enough of them in the drawing. I like the horses better than this one. I guess because I just like horses better. The way you have so many of them and they just seem to blend together in places. Maybe it is the way the white points of color and the lighter points have been put in that make the colors look different. I like the right side better than the left side. There seems to be more definition to the bison on that side. Interesting that you did this one with markers rather than with pens or pencils. maybe that is what gives it that different coloring. I do like all the browns. An excellent work of art.
