This watercolour is an attempt that has succeeded. I printed out a picture template - in this case Friedrich Schiller - and painted the colour values on the sheet without preliminary drawing. Painted as dots, just like in a colour vision test. Since I did not draw in advance and painted relatively fast, the dots are not circles but rather spots of color, in the broadest sense of the word round.
As expected, the viewing distance from which the image is viewed is significant for the recognizability and effect. The closer one approaches, the less one can recognize, in the sense of identifiability. Instead, the color circles come into focus. The further away one goes, the more likely one is to recognize a human figure.
