I had some new insight after reading  “Color Arrangement in Generative Art”  towards the end of the reading.  Part of Hobb’s message aside from the warning to new artists about leaning too hard on other artists color choices is to not be afraid of random variation in color so long as it makes sense contextually. He has multiple pieces that have groups of cool/warm, bright/dark, like/contrasting colors right next to each other to provide a specific cohesiveness. This coupled with the use of gradients can make for color choices that almost form themselves and don’t require the artist to sit there diligently with the eye dropper too looking out for the best hue.
