Hey guys
Just wondering if anyone could tell me how to recreate something similar to what I have attatched.
Making gradients is easy, but I wanted to create something that had some sort of texture.
Thanks in advance

Hello and welcome to PSG.

I'm stuck on the use of the term gradient here. Not sure what your referring to. I do see tonal/hue gradations that make up the abstract, but are you referring to an actual color ramp or color progression that's more associated with a Ps gradient?

Sorry man, reading back through I wasnt really clear.
I know how to produce what you attatched, thats not what I really wanted to do.
I was just wondering if there is a simple way to reproduce the patch-like style of the first attatchment.

Thanks

There are several ways to do this, but the simplest is to just use big brushes, medium hard, switching between several colors.

HTH,

Agreed.

This is just a big cloud brush. I used some scattering, size and angle jitter. You could also play with blend modes, hardness, etc..
