On Day 18 we

  • Discussed the pieces students drew/painted over the course of the last three days

A halftone exercises with watercolors by Madeleine Perreault.A halftone exercise with watercolors by Madeleine Perreault.

 

The effects of additive mixing. Piece by Sara Young, looks grey from far away, but up close it is a colorful mixture.
  • Practiced how to determine the spectral composition of reflected light from the spectral composition of incident light and the reflectance curves of the surfaces.
Given date for a sample problem for which students used the incident intensity distribution and the reflectance curve to find the intensity distribution of the reflected light.
