Art and Music (Spring 2022) - Module 4

This module involves simulation of an impressionist painting:

For this project, I recreated an image of a waterfall (that my mom took a year ago) in an impressionist style. I was inspired by pointillism but decided to put my own spin on it by using rectangular outlines instead of dots (or points). Deciding to use outlines, as opposed to filled-in shapes, has the effect of leaving small amounts of white space throughout the piece, giving it a more "distorted" feel. I was pleased with the results.

I really like this one! It gives the feel of looking through a frosted glass window, like the door to a shower.

This project recreates an image of Machu Picchu in an impressionist style, using a darker color palette I copied from a different picture. I really liked the classic dot-based impressions I saw in the examples so I wanted to do something with that here, too. I deliberately chose something with a very different, darker color palette, to give the image a strange and moody feel, like looking at a black-and-white photograph. But there's still plenty of vibrant colors down towards the bottom half of the screen, which naturally draws your eye around the artwork. I like how it turned out.

This project uses hexagons to create a unique work of art every time the green flag is pressed. The program works by sampling a hue value from a picture taken in venice, then reflects the color on a picture of the forest. The brightness and saturation values are changed from painting to painting to keep the impressionist feel rather than it looking like a jackson pollock.

I really liked this. The unique colors combined with the impressionist style led to a unique rendering of Machu Picchu.

The images I used were of a lake I visited last semester. I used the color palette extracted from a picture of the lake onto a picture of a flower. These two images have colors, but one clear distinction is a purplish hue inherited from the lake image's color, which can be seen in the art.

I enjoyed how you used rectangular shapes rather than dots. The varying shapes really add definition and depth all around the painting.
This is an impressionist style piece of a picture of the rocky mountains I took recently.

I liked this picture a lot. The use of a hexagon kind of gives it a dewy look from my perspective which I think matches well with the picture you choose.

@jrp7vb I love the reverse image with city colors. It almost makes the original scene look like a pile of trash (as respectfully as I can say that). I think of a city sometimes as an epicenter to the pollution problem in the world, so having a city that is very natural turned into colors we see now in cities is so interesting to me.

This project simulates an impressionist painting of a picture I took while going home one day. It repeatedly draws lines from random areas on the canvas.

Great work! I really like the aesthetics of your piece!

This script simulates an impressionist painting of a family picture I took in Portugal over winter break. It repeatedly draws dots on random places on the screen.
I wanted to use a nice looking picture, so I took a picture of the sunset today and used that for my impressionist painting. Instead of drawing with dots or lines like we did in class, I decided to use pentagons to give it a more abstract look.

This is a really great picture to start with, you captured the setting sun's light really well and I really like the contrast between the sun and the dark interior of your car. The lines add some depth to your art, making it look almost pixelated. Really good!

I think this is just a beautiful photo to begin with, and I love the final version of the impressionist style painting.

I wanted to use a picture meaningful to my grandfather, who I plan on sending the postcard to, so I used the naval shipyard in Portsmouth as inspiration. I decided to stick with the dot pattern learned in class, and use many dots at a small size, but big enough to give it the impressionist look.

I really love the use of your own photo! This is a really cool piece of work.

I decided to make art inspired by an impressionist painting. We were inspired by the work of the artist Seurat, and my design is a landscape with mountains.

This is a picture that I took of Hiroshima castle a couple years ago. I experimented a lot with changing the size of the stage, the number and size of pixels I used to paint, as well as the way I went about it (such as tracking where I had placed a pixel before). I think that just using a random algorithm is the best. An interesting thing I found was that because the pictures I used had film grain, sometimes pixels would come out as black randomly. (I have multiple pictures saved in the canvas costumes.)
