Creating imagery with freestyle embroidery

How do you create a smooth graduated fill between two colors using thread? I am studying with fiber artist, Carol Shinn, this week and we are learning how to do this with freestyle machine embroidery.

Here is the stitch-out from yellow green to red violet.

Today we used a photo transfer process to get the image on the base fabric. There are many colors and shades of thread used for the stitching.
