How to draw CORN ROWS

Zentangle pattern: Corn Rows. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.The tangle pattern Corn Rows appears in CZT® Suzanne McNeill’s first Zentangle® book, Zentangle Basics.

Corn Rows is an easy filler to draw and has possibilities for variation with one I’ve shown here. Suzanne’s original pattern is in the upper left corner – I drew the pattern on a grid and left out the background shading in the white squares, opting to fill in the shapes instead.

As a novice at drawing I learned quite an interesting lesson with this pattern. These shapes were all drawn the same size before I did any fills. Yet the dark background squares have much smaller dots than the light background squares. Why? The background fill made the circles appear much smaller because their outlines became part of the background. So next time I would draw those initial circles much larger where I plan to fill in the background. Not earthshaking, but something new I learned today!

Suzanne illustrates how to draw Corn Rows here. UPDATE: Early in the Summer of 2014 Suzanne McNeill’s blog was removed and all the posts and images were lost. The site is being reconstructed as much as possible but the links will no longer be the same. Many of her patterns on TanglePatterns can quite easily be figured out. For those that might be a little more difficult, Suzanne has graciously given me permission to post her copyright-protected images on TanglePatterns for your convenience.

  • Thank you so much for your comment. I saw the effect, but only thought it was my fault. Now it’s plausible.

  • Linda Farmer

    Glad you found that helpful, Gabriele. It’s always fun to discover something like that. I guess one has to focus on the white space that the inside of the circle is forming, instead of looking at the line you are drawing.

  • Hi Linda, thanks for the tips you provide in your site. This trick with making the circles bigger when filling around them is very useful. The problem is to remember it :p I still keep forgetting and end up with teeny circles! Unlike some of mine yours look really good though and the size difference adds interests 😀

    After reading about your allergies (which resulted in a new tangle variation) I was wondering where in Florida you lived only to find out an hour later that I was in your neighborhood visiting a friend – synchronicity! Reflecting on how much I love getting the regular tangle instructions/inspiration I realized it was TIME TO DONATE! Thanks so much for the wonderful resource you provide!
