code drawing 113b, various states, created 2015-08-30. some kids and grownups oh Hopscotch have found a hack where they can create more colors by pasting a bit of text into the color picker field. they use the text entity to type in some Hue Lightness Saturation syntax and can then paint something not in the given palette entity. I never would have imagined this to work. I don’t employ it here, but I was trying to figure out how one might make variable these HLS values to have access to more supple color. instead I’m continuing to put two colors next to each other in hopes of having them interact. this brings Albers to mind, and Itten. there are some glitches that create textures. two pen entities that try to draw in parallel leave overlapping circles of color, and reveal their edges rather than overlap whole lines.
