Jim Pescott is a Calgary-based Canadian Visual Artist and Painter.
Jim paints with a style reminiscent of Pointillism, he is often referred to as a pointillist. His style, however, is different from the classic approach. By contrast to Seurat and his followers who brought the world Pointillism over a century ago, Jim mixes colors on his palette as opposed to placing dots of different colors on canvas side-by-side to fill defined spaces. Jim likes to refers to his style of painting as Dottilism.
Jim paints from three sources: actual places “on site”, his photograph collection, and images in his thoughts. Because his paintings take from twenty to forty hours, when he paints “on location” it’s not possible to complete the work as light and other conditions change so Jim takes the canvas back to his studio to be finished. He’s never without a camera: Jim’s collection of concept material is vast and growing.
