2D. Color Theory – Composition and faux transparency

For my color composition, I was inspired by the rad Color Scheme Designer site. It is so helpful and the design of the site has an intuitive layout. This is from the “accented analogic” setting from the color scheme site. I gather that the accented analogic scheme must be a blend between the analagous and complementary color schemes that we were taught in class. I made a kind of plaid with the colors:

For the next part of the assignment I  made a series of squares that faded out in saturation to give the illusion of transparency. The challenge from the assignment was to refrain from using the opacity tool in Photoshop.
