How to draw TRACERY

Zentangle pattern: Tracery. 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.Tracery is a tangle from CZT® Dianne Krumnow – one of the many CZTs in the fine state of Ohio – and this is her first on the site.

This tangle pattern was inspired by a portion of a stained glass window in Dianne’s church. She writes,”Once a person becomes enthusiastic about the practice of Zentangle®, they notice patterns everywhere.

Patterns are indeed everywhere and all are fun to deconstruct. However, the real challenge is finding tangles amongst the many patterns we observe around us – as Maria reminds us, “A pattern is not always a tangle.

Dianne introduces herself:

“I am a former elementary teacher living in Central Ohio. With teaching, in my blood, I enjoy sharing the Zentangle experience with anyone who will pick up a Micron and give it a try. Finding and deconstructing patterns from my community has become a fun part of my tangling experience.”

Tracery is a very flexible tangle and I used a variation here in my example.

Dianne illustrates in the steps for drawing Tracery here on her blog. You’ll also see there a photo of her pattern inspiration, a completed Zentangle, and suggestions for several variations and other ways to use the pattern.

"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
