Optical mixtures. According to the colour theory of Neo-Impressionism, it is possible to obtain brighter secondary colours, such as green, by making a series of spots of both primaries(which in the case of green are yellow and blue) so that the yellow and blue spots are very closely aligned but not actually mixed. In this way, the colours are mixed in the viewer’s eye, giving a much brighter and cleaner green than is obtainable by actual mixing of the pigments on the palette.
