I have also been painting ribbons for my entanglement canvas. I started in the Open Studio yesterday and worked on the some more today. I wanted to keep them very pastel and not dangerous looking, but they are fearsome. I want the ribbons to appear tangled to a point but also to appear like a trap of some kind. I am blocking them in now, deciding which will be which colors. I will go back and enhance the values after they are all in. I am liking it so far. Any comments or suggestions?
