what do you call this?
Thanks everyone! We have the right word now...it has been agreed that this gradation. Or gradating colors.
I'm having an art vocabulary issue. We have been looking at the work of Peter Max and I can't come up with the right word for when you move from one color to another color in small steps when painting. With adding white you would call it tinting, when adding black you would call it shading, but let's say we are moving from yellow to red and making yellow orange, orange and red orange along the way. It's not monochromatic.... I keep calling it verigating but I'm not sure if that is the right word. I know how to teach it but I don't know what to name it!
