This dot painting is inspired by the masterpiece "The Return of the Hunters" (also "The Hunters in the Snow") by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. With the motif, I was especially attracted to the snow: how can I paint white dots in neo-poitilist style? Leaving the entire surface blank was out of the question. A dot painting must be completely covered with dots. What now?
So I decided to paint the surrounding space in color, so that the dots would be visible as a negative-cut shape. That worked, too. Interestingly, this gives the image a milky, very soft atmosphere, which I think is quite good, though.
