Experimental Google Tool Lets You Search Art by Palette

Google tool Art Palette is so much fun! Via Core77

This is pretty wicked: Google’s Arts & Culture Experiments team has created Art Palette, a free, online tool that lets you plug in a palette–or upload an image–and it then shows you every piece of artwork in their massive database that has a similar palette.
To test it out I selected several pieces of fine art, then uploaded them. I started off with “The Great Wave off Kanagawa:”

Input:

775891 81 76088 9N9xKvHPq

Output:

775893 81 76088 Ww45Y8f5j

From web to interior design, color schemes play a fundamental role in creating cohesive user experiences, establishing brand identities and communicating moods or emotions. So we thought – why not investigate color palettes in art?
Art Palette works as a search engine that finds artworks based on your chosen color palette. Using this tool, you can explore how the same five colors from Van Gogh’s Irises can be related to a 16th century Iranian folio or Monet’s water lilies.
Art Palette can help creative experts in art, design and beyond to make informed choices regarding color palettes, understanding the context and history behind each one.
The tool is pretty addictive, and beyond my silly trials could actually be useful to some of you in your work. Try it out here.

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord
