seasonal color

My fall 2010 research focused on the seasonal color present in the Cutting Garden.  Working from Annette Hoyt Flanders’ planting plan, diagrams representing the four seasons and foliage colors were generated.

 

 

 

 

This set of diagrams demonstrates that the planting plan emphasized blue-violet and yellow-orange flowers — two complimentary colors that would each make the other appear more vibrant.

With a lot of help and the VisualEyes program, an animation of these diagrams was created (click the Flanders Garden tab).  This semester, we hope to add additional functionality to the diagrams.
