Organic Colors #2
Sometime the quiet
colors just work. This one starts with an overall impression of gentle waves or
hills. Then as you look closer you see the chopped color blocks. But now they
are slightly different hues and shades. The individual pieces of confetti does
not stand out as it does with a palette of bright primary colors.

subtitle, even after I said I would not do that.
At an art gallery, the paintings, especially the old masters are almost always muted unsaturated colors and limited palettes. There may be a boring explanation for this, the colors faded over time, or that was the only paint available to the artist. I like that it was the artist’s choice, and that it shows remarkable confidence and restraint.
I like palettes with high contrast black and white, and with saturated primary colors. Art school would say that I overdo it. However, compared to most modern art on the internet, I think show much constraint. Sometimes I like to get a little outside my comfort zone, and work with muted palettes. If nothing else, just for variety, but also as exercise to avoid letting the bright colors become a crutch.

Why the two titles?
I want to keep the classification by the main algorithm, what I have been
calling Confetti. The current subset are clearly related, a high degree of
mixing and mess, partially bleached away with a mostly white palette. But if I
start grouping by core algorithm plus palette plus some kind of entropy
measure, well that gets too much to keep track of. I may tackle that later, but
today I am too lazy.

This one suggests an aerial image of an alien planet.
