Art & Music - Module 4 (Spring 2023)

Here's a link to the fourth module, Simulating an Impressionist Painting:

Create art in through a technique known as pointillism. This method
creates a painting by placing tiny dots on the canvas to create an impression of the original painting.

I invented a new style: rotationist

I pick a round area on the screen, rotate this area and stamp it on the stage

Rotationist style:

I used a transparent brush stroke image as a sprite and in Reflect Color 2, I changed the hue of the sprite to reflect the image color. I then stamped this sprite to create an impressionist style painting. In addition, Reflect Color Reverse does the same thing as Reflect Color 2 it just reverses the hue of the image by subtracting the reflected hue from 100. I then stamped the sprite to create an inverse impressionist painting.
Here is my art for this week. This is inspired by some of Monet's pond paintings, so I also used a pond picture as my background. I used little lines to create the impressionist look and created a slider that can generate 3 different types of painting with different color palettes.

To set the canvas, two images were imported into a second sprite and set as costumes. These costumes contained a beach scenery and a woods scenery. These costumes would be used as a base to create impressionist painting styles. To paint the initial canvas, the pen size was set to 1 to make a finer impressionist drawing and the colors were reflected off of the costume 300000 times. The lines were of size 2 to get that finer look.

For the shifted color palette of the beach scenery, the same method was used except certain hues were changed to lower values. The program checks to see if the hue value is above 20 and then if it is, proceeds to subtract 50 from that hue value and then reflect the new hue color. If the hue value was not above 20, then the same hue value would be used, which is why the rocks in the beach scenery stay the same color. Saturation and brightness levels remained the same as before. This shifted scenery created a Red Sea beach scenery.

For the shifted woods scenery, the program checks if the hue value is greater than 30 and then if it is, then proceeds to subtract 60 from that hue value. Otherwise, the hue stays the same. Once again, saturation and brightness levels remained the same as before. This created a different color of the look of the woods.

Finally, a color profile was generated for both of the original sceneries, which are the two costumes being used. The color profiles do not reflect the shifted color palettes.

Here is my painting. I wanted to change the colors of Bui Vien street, and I extracted the colors from a reef. I used the dots to create the impressionist look

Wait I really like how you went outside of the box for this project and created something new!! The painting looks great!

For this art piece, I drew different lines and dots on one image using the color profile of another image. The cool mix of colors had a wavy effect from lines drawn at an angle based on the hue values.

It's cool how you have two different scenes created with different key presses, and both of them look very nice!

For this project I attempted to contrast the dark colors of the night at the amphitheater from one picture with the light colors of a sunset from another picture.

My attempt to turn JPJ into a beach.

I really liked how the colors of the reef palette recreated the street image. In contrast to lines, I thought the dots were a good choice for this image as it brought out the contrast of brighter dots against the other more muted dots.

I tried to turn palm trees into a skyline.

I like the contrast of color!

I really liked the background picture and they style. One thing that I would suggest is to change the stage size to perfectly fit the picture.

I really like how your painting looks like brush strokes. It gives it a cool blurry/melting effect
