Color Progression

I’ve been doing some sketches dealing with gradual color progression. All these sketches have bars of color that gradually increase in length, wrapping if they meet the edge of the drawing space. Once the bars reach a set length, the next bar will start at the original length and start the progression again. The colors begin as pure Red every time and vary in the progressions by a random variation in one of its Red, Green or Blue values. In the second set I also inverted the color in addition to the gradual progression in attempt to emphasize the bars more. It’s a very simple sketch with a surprising number of variables. The next thing I will likely do is look more closely at rules such as start color, minimum and maximum bar length, amount of color variation etc. I will probably generate some matrices to see which rules produce the best results and then look at some non-static rule sets.
