I saw some generative art work recently that was designed to show off the concept of the limits to growth. And I quickly realized that it would be pretty easy to create these kinds of pieces in the Studio Artist paint synthesizer. An example of what i mean is shown above. This was created using a 5 step PASeq. The first step sets the canvas to white. This is followed by 4 paint action steps. The first draws a single random line. The final 3 paint action steps draw circles with progressively smaller path length and brush source dimensions.
The trick to making this work is to setup the path start conditions so that after the initial line is drawn the remaining paint steps need to start drawing in a non-white area of the canvas. You can do this by setting the path start Inhibitor to Not White Only. Then, you want the drawing to stop if it bumps into something already drawn. You can do this by setting the Path End Not White option to On.
There are a million variations you can generate on this style of imagery. You could hand draw the initial line or shape. And you could define different kinds of line shape styles for the remaining paint steps. And of course the paint presets i'm using in this example are very simple. By using more organic pain effects you could create a lot of aesthetic variety to this kind of generative art piece.
