Using Linear Gradient to Create a Twilight Background
« on: April 02, 2012, 09:13:30 PM »
I've been playing around more with gradients in Inkscape. There is no end to what can be done and I am continually learning new stuff. Here is a link to another tutorial I put together on this subject. <!-- m -->http://www.eyedrawit.com/?page_id=1318<!-- m --> The tutorial will show you how to create a background like the one in the illustration below.

Stunning image and the gradient really highlights the silhouettes.

Thank you Laurianne, I finally GET stops.  I've seen a lot of videos but they go too fast so your nice written one and the pictures did it for me.

You'll see more of my paintings using linear gradients!!!

PapaSue,

I'm glad you found it helpful. Sometimes I have trouble learning from videos as well. I need something "static" that I can look at long enough to process the info!   ;)

I also prefer written tutorials and yours are so easy to follow.
Even though I do make videos I never watch them and always return to my written instructions when I forget something.
