Pointillism vs "Printillism"

The Princess and I were doodling yesterday with her markers and an idea popped into my head after a few uninspired doodles.

We decided to use the markers to make prints within the outlines of what we had drawn instead of colouring it in like how we traditionally practise.

The end result is pretty amazing, if I may brag. The process is pretty much like Pointillism, except that we have included other patterns or prints other than dots. 

Have you experimented with any new art process lately? I'll like you to share them with me in the comments, links are more than welcomed!


  1. pretty! i love the different "texture" in the hand!

    1. Thank you! We are quite excited to try it in different outlines and maybe on "sculptures" or 3-D objects to see the effect. :)

  2. Great idea, and a wonderful way to introduce Pointillism.
