Optical Mixing Portrait

IMG_0177.JPG

An optical mix is when you create paint colors not by mixing them on the palette (or physically), but through knowledge of color theory and how the eye perceives colors that  overlay each other. This was my attempt at achieving a successful mixture. Each color that you see was a single dot, there is NO painting naturally. I was able to make every single dot create a natural portrait from afar. Above the artwork was my process of mixing to create the most accurate colors as possible. The turnout was definitely pleasing.
