Retro...
While playing with different shades of blue I came up with two designs which look very "Austin Poweresesque". Do try setting them as your tiled wallpaper (which is if you are feeling retro too!)






Experimenting with different colors is turning out to be one of my latest hobbies. You can study volumes on color theory, stare at the color wheel for hours, but nothing is more revealing than getting down to playing with colors yourself!

Technical Notes: The latest version of Paint Shop Pro has an interesting feature whereby you can mix two colors on a palette like you would when painting in real life. You can always choose colors the normal "computer" way, i.e. by specifying their RGB or HSL values but the ability to blend colors in this way, adds an interesting dimension to the whole experience.

I set up the first image as my wallpaper. Looks very pretty, like a tablecloth for my desktop. Thanks Deepak.

Neat stuff...GIMP also has a bunch of incredible effects filters....the website is www.gimp.org (also available for windows) Heavy download but not if you have broadband.

Dunno about wallpaper - but that sure would make a very nice book-cover:-)
C'est jolie Deepak! Tres jolie!

Oh, that's gorgeous! Even the textures are just right. I'm so jealous: mixing computer colours on a palette? (Don't know anything about Paint Shop Pro or much about computer colours, for that matter, but it sounds like fun.)
