Before starting this project I assumed it would be relatively easy. Upon starting, however, I had an unexpectedly difficult time getting my code to display. After I finally did get it to display, it turned out that the curve I had chosen was not of the highest aesthetic quality, i.e. it looks like a chunky spider. Nevertheless, I decided to work with it, and ended up choosing a monochromatic color scheme as an experiment with changing gradients.
