Generated Thick Descriptor (via Chat-GPT 4): Pointillism is a unique painting style where small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. The technique relies on the ability of the viewer’s eye to blend these colored spots into a fuller range of tones. To create a piece reflecting this style, avoid mixing pigments, instead dabbing individual, small dots of pure color onto your canvas directly. These dots, when observed from a distance, should visually blend to form the overall image. Preferably, use oil paints for their thickness and less runiness.
The table below depicts New York City’s Times Square and Northern Ontario’s Lake Kenogamissi. The left column shows the results of a “thin” prompt, in which the style was requested in name only. The right column shows the results of a “thick” prompt, in which the generated prompt was used.
These images show what Generative AI renders when one requests that an image be rendered in well-known art styles. This series does not purport to describe major art styles as understood in the art scholarship community.
