Why Ribbons

Ribbonribbons-with-arrowss teach us how to draw and/or paint everything that’s organic. ¬†Things that twist, roll over, bend, fold….all those amorphous shapes that we encounter when painting fabric, hair, waves, birds wings, flowers and leaves, the twists and turns that tree branches take….I could go on and on.

 

RIBBONS-DRAWING

When we fully understand how the edges of a ribbon functions to describe the loops and bends, we’ll be able to create beautiful folds, waves…..folding leaves, curving – bending flower petals.
