Heat and Energy

Red heat. Vector piece by Ulla Hennig, August 2011

Today I decided to try something new with Inkscape – working with layers. I know photoshop layers, and I know how important they are. I haven’t used them in Inkscape so far, but today I did, with the result you can see above.

The second thing I tried out is gradients. Gradient is also something I know from photoshop, but here in Inkscape it doesn’t work the way it does in Photoshop, and everytime I tried to apply gradients I got frustrated because I failed to achieve the result I wanted to achieve. However I am a rather stubborn person, so I tried it again and this time I found out how to do it. WooHoo!

So another important lesson was learnt: Creativity needs endurance and perseverance. Don’t give up too early!

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
