Biography John Markwood
John Markwood was born in Cumberland, Maryland and lived most of his
adult life in Southern California. He painted exclusively with
oil paints, usually on canvas, but occasionally he painted on masonite
Most of his paintings depict forest and landscape subjects and were
executed using a Pointillism technique. This approach required
Markwood to hand stipple many thousands of dots of paint next to each
other. When viewed up close, the paintings appear as an abstract
mass of colored dots but when viewed from a short distance the eye
mixes the colors and picture comes into focus.
A number of his paintings were reproduced as large format fine art
prints, which were distributed nationally
