The Jackson Pollock Effect

Top  Previous  Next

Jackson Pollock invented "action painting" and "dripping". He threw and dripped paint onto a large canvas nailed to the floor.

 

Now you can do the same without the mess!

 

You can change:

 

The length of the drips, (as a % of the diagonal size of the image)
The width of the drips, (as a % of the diagonal size of the image)
The number of drips
The "external margin", which is how much Jackson avoids the edges of the image when dripping
The background color(s)

 

Jackson Pollock had an alcohol problem and, as a result, died in a car crash in 1956.

 

From Version 17 onwards the drip and background colors can be chosen using the color source dialog.
