    Here is my latest revision to my portfolio website.  I don’t know if I am going to keep this color palette.  It’s too dark for my taste.  I do like the space background that I created.  I also like the transparent backgrounds.

    For our  midterm assignment we had to create a site using the REST model.  I chose to create site that allows people to post their complaints of an event that bugged them.   This event could be someone cutting the person off in the car, or someone littering, etc….

    By typing add in the url bar, you can log an event.

    You can filter results by state and city.  Here is an example:

    The main URI is http://test.russelldelatorre.com/net/offense/  after “offense”,

    Type “/ak” shows all events for the state of alaska.  add “/sitka” and will show all events for Sitka, Alaska.

    Add any point in the URI you can type “/add” to add an event.

    This assignment we had to create two abstract pieces. One displays the use of complementary colors and the other tried to create the effect of transparency by changing the Brightness and Saturation values.

    Complimentary Colors:


    By changing the Brightness and Saturation values of a color creates the illusion of transparency.
