Introducing color gradient


        Color gradient means getting more shades from one particular color. We can get multiple color tones out of one specific color. For example, if we take red, instead of one we can make different shades out of this same red color. It varies from a lighter tone to a darker one. 

        Understanding this concept at an early stage helps them to sort and group the different shades of the same color. Because as per the child, red is one color, and they get confused between light and darker shades of red. This concept mainly works in digital photo space, Painting, anything related to drawing. 

        And the best part is, color gradient creates more views out of the same color; it is a treat to eyes. 

        But, how can we develop the color gradient skill simply? Here we can proceed with a few DIY activities to understand the color gradient concept. These were our results. Let’s have a look at them.
