How to draw SHATTUCK

Zentangle pattern: SHATTUCKThis original tangle pattern is a pretty, woven-looking design that can be varied by shading and/or striping, or changing the shape of the arcs, and by varying the treatment you give to the “ribs”.

Sandy Bartholomew gives some ideas for variations and illustrates how to draw Shattuck here.

Update: I received a request for more detailed guidance on drawing Shattuck (see comments below) and I asked CZT® Vicki Murray if she would be interested in posting her step-by-step instructions. In very short order, Vicki responded by posting detailed instructions with tips to keep in mind and some great ideas for variations on Shattuck on her blog.  (01/2014 – Vicki’s blog is no longer around, I have contacted her to get the information and will post it here when she responds.)

Check out the tag: zentangle for more official Zentangle® patterns on TanglePatterns.com. And the tag vickim for more of Vicki’s patterns or illustrations.

    The other day on the “Hello Zentangle Zealots!” page, Kim Gabriel made a request for more help in drawing Shattuck:

    “What I am wondering is if it is possible for you to either show or find some other example showing how to draw Shattuck. Yes, I have looked at Beez in the Belfrey and bought her book and bought both of MacNeil’s books. I have pages (and I mean PAGES) of attempts. For whatever reason, this one pattern absolutely eludes me. And of course, it is one pattern I long with all my heart to have under my belt. So far the only on line example I can find is Sandy’s and I think I need a few more steps. Yup, totally lame but after weeks of working on this, I am flying the white flag of surrender. I would just call it quits altogether if it wasn’t such an amazing pattern. Who knows why my brain will not compute? Any help would be ever so gratefully received. You would be driven to pity if you saw my attempts.”

    In response to Kim’s request I invited CZT Vicki Murray to help us out and she’s graciously agreed. Thanks Vicki!

    Check out the SHATTUCK page for Vicki’s guidance on how to draw this pattern.

    That was fast! Thanks so much, Vicki!

    Vicki responded by posting detailed instructions with tips to keep in mind and some great ideas for variations on Shattuck on her blog, here.

    Huge hugs being beamed out to both Linda and Vicki. I think the key here may be to draw it horizontally instead of vertically. Small stuff, yeah, but that might be just what my poor brain needed! Thanks for the quick response guys, I am grabbing a piece of paper and my trusty G Tec C4 and heading outside…

    I spent the evening yesterday drawing Shattuck. At some point it clicked although I have to say if I let my mind wander at all I make the next set of lines “wrong”. It seems I have some form of tangle dyslexia with this pattern and I have to keep a very close watch on what I am doing. I cannot get into “zen” mode with it or it goes kerflui. I did get it, though, and can now do it and I am very grateful for the help.
