Ribbons of Blue


Ribbons of Blue, approx 9 x 11.5" Colored Pencil on Black Paper

This drawing came out of a classroom assignment I have given my students. Their assignment wasn't this ... but it did bring to my mind this! I was intrigued by the idea of ribbons interwoven and knotted and how they would reflect light and shadow. Plus their undulating shapes and lines are ... well, interesting!

The paper is smooth, black drawing paper - about 180#. And, the colored pencils are Prismacolor.
