The technique relies on the ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to blend the color spots into a fuller range of tones. It is related to divisionism a more technical variant of the method. Divisionism is concerned with color theory, whereas pointillism is more focused on the specific style of brushwork used to apply the paint.
