Ruined Squares

I've been having fun lately generating triangles with Python, as you do. And the other day I stumbled across one of Josef Albers' Homage to the Square. My first thought was, "Wow, the colors." My second thought was, "Those should be triangles."

I went to Google Images and searched for Josef Albers Homage to the Square and picked three at random: Ascending, 1953. Glow, 1966. And Soft Spoken, 1969.

Then I ruined them with computers by turning everything into triangles:

ruined square 1

ruined square 2

ruined square 3

You might want to take a look at some non-ruined versions of Homage to the Square, like Impossibles from 1931 or this one from 1967.
