Here is my first colored Pointillism artwork.
The Aquitaine Coast is a paradise for the nature lovers. It consists in a long and almost straight coastline which starts from the southern end of the estuary of the Gironde and ends in the Basque country, at the border with Spain.
Behind and all along this coastline can be found other paradises, home of true jewels like these two cabins, even houses as they are quite big, standing on their stilts.
These two cabins - or stilt houses - are the sentinels of the Bay of Arcachon, located in the middle of the bay, on the "Île aux Oiseaux" (Birds Island).
They represent the few survivors of an architectural heritage that has mostly disappeared for lack of maintenance in accordance with the weather conditions and hazards.
This artwork represented an average of about 60000 dots and is sold unframed so you can chose your own color for the frame and the mat.
The photo representing the artwork framed is just to give an idea.

Technique of a great beauty and finesse, the Pointillism also requests some step back and above all some patience. This justifies the price of such a realization.
To give a better idea, let's take an average of 50 dots / cm² or 322,5 dots / in² (=6,45cm²).
Therefore, on an average size of 30x20cm (11,8x7,9'in) or 600cm² (93,2in²), this represents an average, in inches, of 93,2x322,5=30000 dots.
This may be one of the reasons why the Pointillism has fallen into a certain forgetfulness - we are actually in a society where (almost) everything must be done quickly, without step back. But this is perhaps why the Pointillism should deserve to be recognized at its right value, not only financial but also technical.
