How to draw DRIP-DROP

Zentangle pattern: Drip-DropThis fun tangle, Drip-Drop, is from CZT#5 graduate Debbie Perdue and it’s her first pattern on TanglePatterns.

I am a Collage and Zentangle® artist from Port St. Lucie, Florida (USA). My friend Barbara had introduced me to Zentangle, and naturally I said…. ‘Zen what?’. I promptly researched and found everything I could about this amazing art form, became addicted and attended a CZT Training last February (2010). What a wonderful experience it was. Both in meeting Maria, Rick and the Zentangle family and to officially become a part of the experience or movement that Zentangle is.

In addition to my ‘daily dose’ of ZIA, my greatest joy is in teaching Zentangle. In my last class I had a student who was returning for the 4th time explain to a ‘newbie’ that she rearranges her whole monthly schedule to attend class and share in the experience. I almost kissed her!

I hope you enjoy Drip-Drop and all the possibilities it has.

Drip-Drop turned 180When I was drawing this tangle I was reminded how it’s often easier to turn your tile for comfort in drawing certain shapes or strokes. Try drawing strokes towards you or away from you, going up rather than down, and so on. You will often discover that the way it appears on paper isn’t the most comfortable way to draw it for you. Everybody is different. I found I was able to control the tear-drop shape better if I drew it “upside down”, as if they were tiny little hot air balloons.

Drip-Drop has lots of potential for variations. Here are Debbie’s steps for drawing her tangle, and an example Zentangle® showing a couple of possibilities.
