Abstract Puzzles

Each jigsaw is designed and developed entirely in the browser. Above are some random outputs generated on the fly just for you – crack open the explorer for finer control of the parameters.

This is the start in a series of expressionist paintings using flow fields.

For each stroke a set of bristles is created - small circles randomly arranged within a larger circle, with slightly varying brightnesses. The bristles are dragged across the design in the direction of the flow. The low opacity strokes overlapping create a mottled paintbrush effect.

The outcomes look like they could be made by a toddler splashing paint on a canvas, so decided to lean in to that and opt with bright, clashing poster paint-esque colours.

The resulting puzzle had a good spread of colours, and although the textures of the brushstrokes were quite subtle they helped to guide the solve; overall very enjoyable.
