Draws an ellipse (oval) to the screen.


Draws an ellipse (oval) to the screen. An ellipse with equal width and height is a circle. By default, the first two parameters set the location, and the third and fourth parameters set the shape’s width and height. The origin may be changed with the Py5Graphics.ellipse_mode() function.

This method is the same as ellipse() but linked to a Py5Graphics object. To see example code for how it can be used, see ellipse().

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.ellipse


    a: float,  # x-coordinate of the ellipse
    b: float,  # y-coordinate of the ellipse
    c: float,  # width of the ellipse by default
    d: float,  # height of the ellipse by default
) -> None
