# thlai-Project-10-Landscape

Generative Landscape

I struggled a lot with this project. There were so many little things I wanted to do but didn’t know how to execute. I wanted to create a calming lake and mountains landscape with the sun in the background and used a purple color scheme and gradients to achieve this. The starter code helped me a lot with the clouds.  The most difficult part, I think, was creating the reflections in the water – I used the noise() function to create them and used a similar code to the mountains. In the end, I used fog image to spice things up and create atmosphere.
