The word pointillism comes from the French word "point" = "dot". This painting technique uses the dot as the only stylistic element. Dots in various sizes and colours give the picture its shape, the density of the dots determines the tonal values of the finished picture.
A key strength of the Ecco Pigment: The shape of the pen nib does not change even after several thousand dots, meaning that lines and dots retain their size and quality reliably.
The effect of pointillism is revealed when viewed from a distance: The further away the observer is from the picture, the more the dots merge into complete visual areas. An effect we are familiar with from the field of printing. Here too, a picture is created based on the density and overlapping of dots.
Illustrating is a real pleasure with Ecco Pigment fineliners.
The usage options are endless: as a line drawing, for highlighting in watercolour or acrylic pictures, for quick sketches while on the move, for combining in collage techniques. Many illustrators prefer to draw a line drawing by hand and to continue working on it on the computer. The exact line of the Ecco Pigment impresses in this field too with loss-free digitisation.
