Create a rainbow in Photoshop

Or Rainbow of the Night Sky! I have no idea why I created my rainbow against a night sky, but I did. Maybe it’s because there should be night time rainbows. How beautiful that would be!

Rainbows are the tears of joy from heaven. Obviously, in Ireland, we believe there’s a crock of gold at the end of them as well.

I’ve never found a pot of gold but I always make a wish when I see one, and who knows, maybe one day I will! Anyhow, who doesn’t like a rainbow?!  Today I have been looking at Polar Co-ordinates in Photoshop (not mathematics)! They take verticals and curve them in a single command. So easy! So using a rainbow gradient and the Polar Co-ordinates I made a rainbow of my own.  I added a sparkle brush because it kind of looked pretty and the brush can be kept forever in the brush presets to be used whenever a dusting of sparkly spangles is called for.

I’ve written up the tutorial for you. It takes much longer to explain and write up than it does to create them.
