How to draw PENDRILLS

Zentangle pattern: Pendrills. 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.New addition to our repertoire of Zentangle®-original tangles! Zentangle founders Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas have just published a new tangle named Pendrills. This tangle was inspired by “the beauty of grape vines“.

I found this one quite a challenge to draw to my satisfaction in the small format I do my examples (these are actual size). Even the 01 Micron tends to fill in the “knots” at this scale. Pendrills looks much better on the larger 3.5-inch scale of the official Zentangle tile, and Maria shows two lovely Zentangles featuring Pendrills with her instructions.

Maria demonstrates the steps for drawing Pendrills here. As with many of the Zentangle®-original tangles, this one comes to life when part of the tangle is “drawn behind” giving the pattern added dimension.

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H

    Hi Linda,

    I’ve bought a couple Zentangle books ( Totally Tangled, Zentangle 2 and Alpha Tangle)over the past year or so.
    My eyesight is not sharp as it was when I first discovered Zentangling(diabetic retinopathy-macula edema) & makes seeing the Alpha Tangle impossible…
    I also follow TanglePatterns.com regularly and very much enjoy it!

    I don’t know how to begin doing zentangles-I have micron pens and paper to do this-can you tell me how to start, please? I could use the stress free qualities I see others say they get from this art!

    Also, is the newer edition of Alpha Tangles made up of larger print? Is there a way for me to exchange one for the other? My copy is in pristine condition.

    Thanks very much for your help!

    Sincerely,
    Ethel Wagner

      Hi Ethel, both of your Zentangle books (Zentangle 2, Totally Tangled) have instructions on getting started, have a look at page 6 in each. You might consider buying the official kit because it comes with a good instructional DVD with Maria Thomas. But since you already have the Microns and paper, if you follow the instructions in those books you should be fine. To begin with, just pick 2 or 3 patterns you like and have fun.

      The newer edition of AlphaTangle is physically bigger than the first edition, but the images within are pretty much the same size. Perhaps a magnifier would help you see those images better.

      Hope this helps, and best of luck to you!

    I’ve found my eyes are not as sharp as they used to be either. Try a MagEyes or Optivisor. They fit on your head, and the lenses come in different strengths, so you can change them, to get what suits you. Good luck! You are going to love Zentangling. It helps me with insomnia, if I do it for a few minutes before bedtime. I think I’m getting addicted! Good luck!

    • Ethel

      Thanks for the information. Where did you get the MagEyes and/or Optivisor?
      I certainly would love something to help with insomnia. The ipod hasn’t been doing it for me lately!

    I really like Pendrills. It is easy and fun, but looks hard.
    Thanks so much!

  • Thanks for Pendrills, they are very attractive. Will give them a try now. xx
