Color similarity

The average human eye is good at recognizing variations in color. In the process of still life drawing an artist starts to see these colors in space and add them to the canvas. This project is an experiment at identifying the similar colors within an image. The project uses a web cam to capture a live image and in real-time is it analyzed for its colors and a profile is drawn around the similar colors. These profiles when drawn individually may look similar to an organic blob. When these profiles are drawn on top of one another the image starts to be fill in similarly how an artist adds layers of color to create the composition.
