Inspiration: Sailing Ships by Lyonel Feininger

I spent quite a while to look at the gallery, and actually tried some other pictures before I decided to choose this one. The patterns of this picture, such as lines, quad and circle, are exactly what we have learned so far. The balance, especially the lines on the left side of the original picture makes this picture a masterpiece. The color of this picture is actually dark, and I thought I should make it brighter with beautiful sunshine. The sun with the sunrays is my favorite part because "translate + rotate" is the best team I have seen so far.

Honestly, I spent lots of time to get a curved line. I got what I wanted with bezier(), but i actually still don't quite understand the logic behind it. When I have any technical difficulties, google, P5 reference page and discussion forum are my best friends. Professor Hebert always gives us prompt and clear answer.

I had a great time on my first assignment.
