    Control gradient direction when applying to multiple brush strokes.

      Hi everyone.

       

      I'm in CS5, Windows 7.

       

      I'm creating an animal and for a fur texture, I created a new brush stroke.  I am trying to apply a gradient swatch I created to all the strokes, but I can't control the direction.  I need the gradient transparent on the round end of the stroke and brown on the pointed end of the stroke.  No matter what I do, it gets all crazy and some strokes have it the right way and others are reversed.
