Gradient to follow the shape of a line ~ Lynn
« on: November 25, 2017, 11:54:35 am »
In reply to a question as to how to create a gradient to follow the shape of a line, I posted the following response on the Affinity Forum > Questions:

I used a shape filled with red, then colored strokes curved as desired, grouped these and applied a Gaussian Blue, then nested them in the red shape
