Fill an array with smooth sequence of colours

 I wish to populate the elements of an array (of arbitrary length) with a smooth progression of colour values. Using 'BlendColors' I can find a midway colour between two values. What i would like is a neat algorithm to fill each of these intermediate values in a given array.
e.g. for an array of length n
the value at index n div 2  (Call it Vi) is BlendColors( colour[0],color[n]...)
the value at index [n div 2] div 2 is the result  BlendColors( colour[0], Vi...)

 function BlendColors(Color1, Color2: TColor; Opacity: Byte): TColor;
  r, g, b: Byte;
  c1, c2: PByteArray;
  Color1 := ColorToRGB(Color1);
  Color2 := ColorToRGB(Color2);
  c1 := @Color1;
  c2 := @Color2;

  r := Trunc(c1[0] + (c2[0] - c1[0]) * Opacity / 256);
  g := Trunc(c1[1] + (c2[1] - c1[1]) * Opacity / 256);
  b := Trunc(c1[2] + (c2[2] - c1[2]) * Opacity / 256);

  Result := RGB(r, g, b);
