How to draw AHH

Zenangle pattern: AhhAhh is one of the Zentangle®-original tangle patterns. I’m cheating here a bit, there are no online instructions for drawing this tangle but it’s universal enough that I figured you can work it out.

I’ve seen Ahh done with and without the dots or circles at the end of the strokes, both are simple and make great fillers. Looks a bit like fireworks — Happy 4th all!

    So happy I found your website!! I took a class a couple weeks ago and fell in love. I am a wannabe artist, so this fits the bill perfectly. My problem right now is finding the product where I live……central Maine. I went to a large change craft store and they have never heard of Zentangle. So, for the moment I have to wing it!
    Thanks for bing there….

    Thanks so much for your excellent site. Have always doodled but never had any art classes having been told as a child not to bother by my art teacher.
    Folk art was my savior in my need to paint and now there’s Zentangle. Have even got 10 year old boistrous boys utterly fascinated and giving it a try. “There’s no wrong or right and everything’s fixable” is the motto we use. Gives incredable freedom and stimulation to the little grey cells. Thanks for the the help and inspiration you have given. Sue

    Hi Linda,

    Many thanks for the website with incredible information. I learned about such “zentangle” at a public library. I first wasn’t sure if I want to “”waste”” my time to even looking into it – Zentangle??? What’s THAT??? My friend told me :”Phuong, it won’t kill you. Let’s go over there and sit down” I hesitated and now I’m WOW! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the art and my friend’s advice. Everything I look at is — zentangle pattern. I’m soooo GLAD that I found your site and can’t stop reading everything on this site. Where does the time go? I got to do this and that… So I have to stop to do some house chores and errands. Till next visit on the site, I THANK YOU Linda for your generosity.

    Hi Linda,
    Thank you so much for your website, I have to attend hospital and Drs appointments with my parents the waiting time some times is hours, so I now take pen and paper, it relaxes me and the time flies. Thanks again, for all your detailed information.

  • Tawny
