Solution 1

There’s an easier way

  1. Create a new image with as many pixels as you need.

  2. Choose a new foreground colour, i.e. a green colour for the grass, and fill the canvas with it using Edit > Fill with FG colour

  3. Do Filters > Noise > HSV Noise, and move the Value slider until you get the effect you want.

Solution 2

If you use a color-indexed image, a different solution is to use the Dissolve move that replaces random pixels with another color. Either:

Using another layer:

  • Add a layer, fill with a color from the color palette
  • Set layer to Dissolve mode
  • Reduce the layer opacity to obtain the adequate color mix

Using the paint tool directly:

  • Set the FG color from the color palette
  • Set the paint tool (brush/bucket) to Dissolve mode
  • Reduce the tool opacity
  • Paint

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
