How to draw PAIZEL

Zentangle pattern: Paizel. 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.Paizel is a tangle from lettering artist and CZT® Angie Vangalis, and it’s her first on the site.

Paizel is featured in Beckah Krahula’s One Zentangle A Day on a spread that also features Angie’s “Illumitangles” – illuminated letters with tangles. “With Beckah’s book coming out this week, I thought it was time to add Paizel to the TanglePatterns lot,” writes Angie. Perfect timing, thanks Angie!

Part of this tangle pattern uses the official tangle Nekton (illustrated in Sandy Bartholomew’s AlphaTangle – along with 76 more of the original 102 official Zentangle® patterns) as the connecting background for the main motif (Step 6 below).

As you will see in Angie’s beautiful examples below, Paizel makes a very pretty border pattern. I made several attempts using it as an overall pattern and wasn’t particularly successful. For it to be pleasing to my eye, I found the “heads” of the stroke in Step 1 need to be distributed in an attractive pattern first. So, for me, border pattern it is!

Angie lives in Coppell, TX, and she introduces herself:

I’m a dedicated creative professional, lettering artist, author and teacher. My art and Zentangle-related tools and products have been developed to inspire and are also featured in news and trade publications. My company AV Graphics provides marketing solutions and training for small businesses. I earned a BA degree in Art, am certified as an official Zentangle Teacher (CZT) and for Copic markers. My philanthropic activities include Director of the 25th International Lettering Arts conference and Chairman of Texas & Neighbors Regional Art competition.

Here are Angie’s step-by-step instructions for drawing Paizel and a Zentangle also featuring it as a border. Notice how Angie’s shading really makes the Paizel “frame” look 3D.

Angie also sent along a sneak peak at one of her pages (Day 31) in One Zentangle A Day.

Here’s Angie’s lovely original Zentangle from the book, featuring Paizel and several other official tangles. (Editorial note: You really can’t go wrong with the official tangles, they all play so well together.)
