Ribbons in Colored Pencil - in large Moleskine sketchbook
approx., 8.5"h x 11w" when opened flat
I'm practicing drawing ribbons (for another project). These are all from bits and pieces I saved over the years. Most are from gifts, but the double pink ones, on the upper right hand side of the Moleskine, are from my wedding bouquet ... awww. lol
I'm going on record saying while I like grosgrain ribbon to use or wear, I don't like to draw it! ack! The multi-colored ribbon, on the left, in the sketch is the grosgrain. I love the ribbon, but I don't think I have enough patience to draw the texture of grosgrain.
I didn't realize it when I was doing this sketch, but this month is Breast Cancer Awareness month. So all the pink ribbons (which I really have many of, in various shades), are befitting the month too.
