Step 61

For this marker, you’ll use hex color codes for your gradient.

Use the linear-gradient function and set gradientDirection to 180deg. And for the first color argument, use a hex color code with the values 55 for red, 68 for green, and 0D for blue.


Sorry, your code does not pass. Hang in there.


Your .green CSS rule should have a background property with the value linear-gradient(180deg, #55680D).
