Portrait Art Series: Poking Around

                                                 Portrait: Gone Flying   by: Greg Smith, Jan. 2010

We are excited to introduce the first of an ongoing series on portrait art.
This is one of my favorite pieces. The process I used in this piece is called pointillism. It is comprised of nothing but tiny little dots. The media of choice on this one is a black sharpie.

Pointillism, also called divisionism invented by  Georges Seurat , is a technique of painting elaborated from impressionism, in which dots of unmixed color are placed side by side on a white background so that from a distance they fuse in the viewer's eye into appropriate intermediate tones.

The main difference here is that I chose to go with a black sharpie instead.
