I realized that I would not be able to get a survey of images that at least sketch out how they may look without down-scaling significantly. I’ve reduced the resolution of my working files from fitting in an HD frame down to 10% and calculated SOMs where the number of iterations matches the number of pixels. I’m quite happy with the quality of these results! Only a few seem quite weak to me, due to (a) the lack of diversity (which is exaggerated by the brutal down-sampling here) or (b) a lack of colour restraint. The images below are in the same order as the painting long-list post.
