Html5 canvas on retina display + phoneGap

Monday, April 30th, 2012

I’ve been looking for a solution for drawing crisp images on html canvas when building an application with phoneGap. It has been a problem since phoneGap seems to ignore viewport settings in meta tag. After googling for about a half hour, I finally seem to have got the right answer.

Some more paintings

One of my favorite but probably not very well know works of Pablo Picasso are his series of Las Meninas, which is based on Velázquez’s masterpiece of the same title. He created those 58 paintings by picking up different parts of the original and re-interpreting them into his unique style.

While not comparable with stunning works of genius, I had my auto-painter program reproduce some masterpieces. One is of course from Las Meninas. The another is Starry Night by Van Gogh, which looks like it works better with the program’s crude touch.
