Another gallery show image, again grabbed while watching Cosmos. I never knew Michael Faraday's personal history, just his scientific discoveries, so the episode we watched was pretty fascinating.

Again, this was generated by gallery show mutating paint synthesizer presets automatically and then using them to build up randomized paintings. I was working with a source folder of about a thousand shutter stock images, so the source being painted is randomized every gallery show cycle as well.

And i also use the gallery show preference features to limit the number of paint strokes that are drawn by the paint synthesizer in each gallery show cycle. So they tend to pile up in the canvas over time, and this buildup effect leads to some interesting artistic results, which can be seen in this particular image for example.
