The Pointillist painters of the 1880's were interested in using dots to visually mix colors. They used dots of different colors to simulate blended colors. For example, if dots of two colors are placed next to each other, from a distance they look like a third distinctive color. This Neo-Pointillist painting 'Jack Nicholson' is my latest example of that Pointillist technique of mixing colors. This painting has around 24,000 dots!
