Blog Logo, Mesh Gradient


Awareness of the outside world. BBC: In pictures: Strawberry Moon rises, June 25, 2021

Process notes. Last week, linear and radial gradient from Inkscape. [Summer Words]

This week, I clinked on another button and found mesh gradient. I still don’t have a good “handle” on what it is or how to use it. (That was a vector joke.)

These letters are single, random colors with automatic mesh gradient fill and no stroke, i.e. edge. I went with simple when I ran out of time/patience/ability to understand the tutorials. Image finished with GIMP.

I also discovered that gradients can be designed from scratch with icons on the tool bar. One is not limited to the choices made by the fill menu. In retrospect, duh. The point of using complicated graphics software is to have control over your design.

Stay safe. Stay sane.
