Many aspiring generative artists find color to be one of the most difficult aspects of their work. On top of the standard color-related challenges you’ll find in any medium, in generative art you typically have much less control over the exact color choices for any particular element in your work.

Color is something that many generative artists struggle with. It can be frustratingly difficult to get right, and there are no simple rules that work 100% of the time. I highly recommend that you study the color work of traditional artists as well as read about color theory. The more tools you have
DRAWING MACHINE 05 | Color line drawing | Pen plotter (AxiDraw V3/A3 + Processing Art + AutoCAD) - YouTube
This pen plotter drawing is made with the AxiDraw V3/A3 drawing machine which uses two layers of color, blue and red. The line drawing was made with Processing and modified in AutoCAD.
Once the first drawing was drawn, the color pens are switched and are drawn on top of the first layer of the drawing. This time-lapse video is composed of two independent sequences.
Pen plotter drawings have a unique quality that no algorithm can recreate - it's the interaction of the pen with the surface of the paper that creates unique and unexpected outcomes. In this case, especially the interaction of the two colors, blue and red.

Quil is a thin Clojure wrapper over the Processing framework. I love using Clojure for my artwork, because Lisps give you the power to do some pretty wild stuff. It's also much less tedious to write than Java. Setting up your environment for working
