They painted the sun light, as it changed.
Claude Monet 1840-1926 made numerous paintings of the cathedral of Rouen,
only to show how it changed with the shifting sun light
The pointillists went a step further, they used the power of the basic colours. If possble they would stick to the primary colours and black and white.
In stead of mixing the paint, they would make your eyes mix the colours.
By doing so they were able to keep the paintings much brighter.
George Seurat 1859-1891
is one of the most famous Pointillists
