What's the Point?

Create a painting using a technique called pointillism.

Pointillism is a painting technique developed by George Seurat in the late 1800’s. Instead of mixing colors, Seurat painted two tiny dots colors right next to each other. This technique is known as “optical mixing.” Seurat believed this approach gave his paintings a brighter appearance.
