How do I make these lines/colors in an image?

How do I make these lines/colors in an image?
Hi!

I finally registered - have been meaning to do for a long time since I've been using GIMP for years, but have never really been very good at it.

So I am creating this website, and my customer wants a header banner similar to this:

[Image: 2i29a1c.png]

(I don't know if it's clear enough, but there are multiple lines going through the image, with different gradient colors and so on)

Now I can't use this image, since it belongs to another website, but I want to make my own. So, I have no clue about how to make these lines in GIMP. I know GIMP's interface very well (been cropping, coloring for years), but not advanced features like this.

And it's not only the lines, but also the shadowing/coloring in between the lines that I seriously have no clue about how to make.

Can anyone help? What is the tool called used for making this? Is there a video tutorial on how to make something similar?

I really hope you can help me out! Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
Qwalk

Again, thanks. It took a while to understand how paths works, but I realized I just had to make a gray background on the canvas, right click the paths (under the path menu) and click "Path to selection" and then just use a soft gradient. When understanding how it worked, it only took me like 5 minutes or so.

I ended up with this result which I'm pretty happy with Smile
