# Wand ellipse() function in Python

• Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

elippse() function is used to draw an ellipse on the image. Just similar to drawing circle the ellipse() function requires two pairs of point that is, origin and a pair of (x, y) radius of the ellipse. To draw a partial ellipse, provide a pair of starting & ending degrees as the third parameter.

Syntax :

```wand.drawing.ellipse(origin, radius, rotation)
```

Parameters :

ParameterInput TypeDescription
origin(collections.abc.Sequence) – (numbers.Real, numbers.Real)pair which represents origin x and y of ellipse.
rotation(collections.abc.Sequence) – (numbers.Real, numbers.Real)pair which represents start and end of ellipse. Default (0, 360)

Example #1:

 `# Import required objects from wand modules``from` `wand.image ``import` `Image``from` `wand.drawing ``import` `Drawing``from` `wand.color ``import` `Color`` ` `# generate object for wand.drawing``with Drawing() as draw:``    ``# set stroke color``    ``draw.stroke_color ``=` `Color(``'black'``)`` ` `    ``# set width for stroke``    ``draw.stroke_width ``=` `1`` ` `    ``# fill white color in arc``    ``draw.fill_color ``=` `Color(``'white'``)``    ``origin ``=` `(``100``, ``100``)``    ``perimeter ``=` `(``50``, ``100``)`` ` `    ``# draw circle using circle() function``    ``draw.ellipse(origin, perimeter) ``    ``with Image(width ``=` `200``,``               ``height ``=` `200``,``               ``background ``=` `Color(``'green'``)) as img:``        ``# draw shape on image using draw() function``        ``draw.draw(img)``        ``img.save(filename ``=``'ellipse.png'``)`

Output :
