How to draw GEWURTZ

Tangle pattern: GEWURTZGewurtz is the third in my own so-called “wine” series of tangle patterns, which has been preceded thus far by Chard and Zin. Gewurztraminer, as you may know, is from the Alsace region of France. It is a tad spicy and a little bit sweeter than a Riesling. But I digress …

As you might have expected from me, Gewurtz is based on a grid. It is also a classic pattern that hails from antiquity, and not “mine” by any stretch, but we’re giving it a Zentangle name. It reminds me of the whirligig-type pinwheels we used to make out of paper and decorate, then pin them to a stick to let the wind do its thing. Simple pleasures. Digressing again…

In the step-by-step illustration below you will notice (again) some red dots in Step 5. This is where I want the solid areas to go and I’ve marked them in advance so I don’t lose track as I’m doing them. This pattern is one, for me at any rate, that requires concentration. You can vary this pattern quite a bit by using different fills in the solid areas.

I hope you enjoy tangling with Gewurtz - it’s the first “G” pattern to be posted!

  • I love it, I can’t wait to try it!

  • After I complete my zentangle design on a leather hand bag do I need to use a sealer of some sort? I just began experimenting with this. Any particular permanent marker better for this use as oppossed to another?

    Thank you for your response,

    I LOVE your idea of naming some of your patterns after wines Linda ! Dang, I wish I’d thought of that! My husband is an ex professional winemaker so wine has always been very much a part of our life……Have you come up with a Riesling yet? …..that’s another favourite of ours !
