This fully working Python project demonstrates a method of creating a gradient fill, to add depth to flat looking rectangles. It also shows how to use transparency effects to change the shape of gradient filled surfaces, how to plot points of a circle, and some examples of why you would want to do so. The activity would be suitable for students developing their python programming skills, and could be used a basis for adapting and extending existing programs.
