Some facts on Pointilism

Pointillism is often considered part of the Post-impressionist movement. It was primarily invented by painters George Seurat and Paul Signac. While Impressionists used small dabs of paint as part of their technique, Pointillism took this to the next level using only small dots of pure color to compose an entire painting. 

Pointillism reached its peak in the 1880s and 1890s after the Impressionist movement. Many of the concepts and ideas, however, continued to be used by artists in the future. 

Unlike some art movements, Pointillism has nothing to do with the subject matter of the painting. It is a specific way of applying the paint to the canvas. In Pointillism the painting is made up entirely of small dots of pure color. See the example below. 

I have used this technique in painting mandalas on paper and rocks.
The literal meaning word Mandala means circle, and circle mandalas are also one of the most commonly available form of mandalas. … Ancient Hindu scriptures depict mandalas as a period of creativity, of powerful existence, and a symbol of deeper connection with the self and the universe at large.
Mandalas as a form of meditation are entering medicine as a healing tool. An increasing body of clinical trials suggests that meditation may reduce stress, combat depression, reduce pain, and lower blood pressure. … People who color mandalas often experience a deep sense of calm and well-being.
