Colors

Still we haven't even really scratched the surface of Artlandia's extensive spectrum of tools. It also contains a pleasant set of color manipulation functions. Here, we create a simple palette, then interpolate a handful of shades from the palette.

With this we can make a modified version of the Kolomyjec tiling.  In this version we can paint each tile with a color from our palette using Paint. We've selected the color from a list whose length is a function of the distance from the edge; in this case, the closer to the edge, the more likely it is that color will come from the front of the list.

Finally, we do the tiling.

Plotting this would have no doubt drained the plotter pens in the old days, almost certainly earning you the ire of your system manager. Such are the sacrifices and perils of art.
