Here's a short Python program to create a pattern using coloured shapes.
from turtle import * # set a shape and colour shape("circle") shapesize(5,1,2) fillcolor("red") pencolor("darkred") penup() # no drawing goto(0, -100) for i in range(72): forward(10) left(5) tilt(7.5) stamp() exitonclick()
Create a new Geany file, enter the Python code, save it as
turtle-shapes.pyand execute the program. After you've seen it run modify the code to experiment with different shapes, fill colours and pen colours.
