Biography from
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 board.

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 and framed and sold retail through print galleries.  His original paintings were sold through a gallery in Laguna Beach, California.
