Maybe you already know and use this gradient technique, but I didn't.
Yes, I know this is a nail art tutorial - but this method can be used in painting on canvas and paper too, not just on nails.
Here's the link.
Feel free to post what you come up with, if you try it.

The quarterly magazine Creative Nonfiction is seeking an Australia-based
artist to illustrate our upcoming fall 2012 issue, Creative Nonfiction
#46, and we hope you’ll encourage your blog readers, or anyone else who
might be interested, to apply.
We’ll consider various types of media — line drawings, collage,
watercolors, etc. — and welcome all styles of interpretation well suited
to a print format. The chosen artist will work closely with our editorial
and design staff to create 8 to 10 original designs that will be featured
on the cover and interior of the magazine.
Creative Nonfiction has an international circulation of 7,000, so this is
a great opportunity for an Australian artist (student or professional) to
have their work seen by a large audience. The chosen artist will also be
profiled for at least three months on CNF’s website, which attracts nearly
13,000 visitors per month, and this issue will be launched at the 2012
Melbourne Writers Festival.
Interested artists should upload a resume and three low-resolution jpeg
samples of their best work no later than 11:59 PM (GMT) on March 16, 2012.
A link to an electronic portfolio is also preferred.
To apply or see more details, go here:
Thanks for your time.
