How to draw ANGEL FISH

Zentangle pattern: Angel Fish. 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.Marizaan van Beek, a colleague from my CZT#7 class last October, is from Pretoria, South Africa, one of two CZTs in that country.

Her simple and lovely Angel Fish tangle pattern is her first on the site.

Marizaan writes, “Five years ago I was introduced to Zentangle® by accident looked it up and as a Social Worker and Art Therapist I knew here was something special. I was not practicing anymore but I wanted to teach Zentangle as I knew instinctively it could change people. It took me four years before I could make my trip to Providence but I am now a proud CZT. I started to teach right away and enjoy every moment of it.

I was doing Sanibelle when this just emerged. It is a mix of Sanibelle, Fescu, and Dragonair … One of my students named it Angel Fish, so Angel Fish it is.

Dragonair is based on the official tangle Cadent, which you will no doubt discover is a veritable tangleation factory.

The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Angel Fish is a very easy and versatile tangle pattern – you can draw it as simply as I’ve done above or you can create an overall pattern with it as Marizaan does in her tile below. In my example on the right I linked several of them together. It grows organically by using any of the Fescu “stems” and working it outwards. Quite cool.

Marizaan illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing her Angel Fish tangle pattern below, accompanied by a lovely Zentangle® starring Angel Fish.
