Second Machine Portrait


This is the second portrait produced by the machine. The stroke resolution is quite low and the result is quite abstract. The painting highlighted a major area for improvement in the definition of the brush pressure profile:

  • Currently the pressure of the brush during a stroke varies¬†along the length of the stroke, but going forward it should also vary depending on how much paint is on the brush and potentially also the relative importance of each individual stroke.

Below I’ve presented a couple of additional images to show some of the key steps. There is also a video showing the machine painting process:
