FND115 Week 1 Assignment 3:
Starting with a single hue, create three separate scales, each with at least 10 steps.
  1. One scale will consist of tints of the hue, arranged so that the scale progresses evenly from the hue to the color white.
  1. One scale will consist of shades of the hue, arranged so that the scale progresses evenly from the hue to the color black.
  1. And one scale will consist of tones of the hue, arranged so that the scale progresses evenly from the hue to a gray that is equal in value to the hue. Please note that by using a gray that is equal in value to the starting hue, your tone scale will remain constant in value throughout, while just changing in saturation.

Use the same hue for all three scales, and use a hue other than that shown in the example.

FND115 Week 1 Assignment 4:
Create three separate designs using only circles of various sizes and colors. Be creative with the composition of your designs.
  1. One design should use gradations in hue, while keeping all of the colors at maximum saturation.

  2. One design should utilize gradations in value, while retaining a fixed hue.

  3. One design should use gradations in saturation, while retaining both a fixed hue and value.

FND115: Adjustments made after comments from Professor.<br />In your Gradation in Hue Assignment you need to work with a fixed hue, in other words one color.  The design seems to be working fine. FND115: Adjustments made after comments from Professor.<br />In your Gradation in Value the design is working fine, I think you need to push to the low-key end of the value scale, in other words more black, so you have some darker circles as well. FND115: Adjustments made after comments from Professor.<br />Your Gradation in Saturation is working ok, the design is simple, perhaps you could over-lap some circles in this layout as well.  Maybe pushing some of the shapes off the page so that the design is not directly down the center and squeezed into the picture plane.
