Now the painting is taking on an extremely pointillistic look, some artists will settle for the wide spacing of dots with white space showing around each one. I, on the other hand, overlap my dots until they are difficult to see. Don’t ask me why, it is intuitive. I keep painting until the image satisfies my eye without regard to technique. At this phase the image is difficult to discern, especially when working up close, and my brain feels the strain of sorting out the dots.
