code drawing 120 (slow draw), various states, created on 2015-10-24. made the pipes huge (10,000%, I think). this really slowed the drawing/rendering to a crawl. it didn’t crash, surprisingly. it did get some nice color variants, and some soft edges which were unexpected. the pipes weren’t transparent enough for the drawn lines to show through. there was a peek-a-boo reveal as the pipes moved. pastels moved aside to reveal saturated colors. after a short run I made the pipes smaller (5,000%) which ran quicker than before, but still slow. just fast enough so that someone won’t lose patience if they are given advance warning. I let it run again and published it. without the saturated lines it might be able to approximate a dynamic Rothko. it wouldn’t be a drawing, then, but a painting.
