pointillism using digital stamps
Pointillisms Using Digital Stamps are digital pieces of art that borrow a
style from the artistic Impressionist
Seurat had a very original brush stroke. Instead of painting a solid image
he would use his brush to place little dots of paint on his canvas. When the
observer stood far back enough, the dots merged and the viewer became
unaware that the painting was made up different shades of small dabs
of paint. If someone were to look
at the painting at a much closer distance, the image would become
If you were to substitute each of the little dots with a specific one-color
pattern, you would have what I have termed a Pointillism Using Digital Stamps.
By giving the patterns, or digital stamps, different colors, a larger image
will emerge. The stamps can be the same image as the whole image or they can
be a different image entirely. This type of artwork needs to be large enough
so that the stamps can be recognizable when viewed from a close distance.
There are a number of steps that must be taken to create a Pointillism
Using Digital Stamps. First, you must make a pixelized version of the large
image where squared off areas of the picture are substituted by the average
color in the original area. These colors are the colors used to paint the
stamps. Next, you must make the stamp by converting the image into two
colors and then making the contrast on this image 100 percent. This will
give you a black and white image. This image should be resized to about one
inch by one inch so the final picture will be about two feet by three feet.
Finally, you must cut and paste each of the colored stamps into their correct
position. It is evident that this process lends itself to a computer program.
