How to draw PARIS

Robert and I have been enjoying the crown jewel of professional cycling races, Le Tour de France, for many many years. And I have to say that this year’s 100th Edition that finished in Paris yesterday was one of the more interesting and exciting and breathtakingly beautiful I’ve seen.

Hearty congratulations to Britain’s Chris Froome and the Sky Team for a classy, well deserved win. And to the young Colombian, Nairo Quintana, an amazing climber on the Movistar Team, who not only finished second in the race in his first Tour, but also won the prestigious King of the Mountains jersey. He’s one of cycling’s future stars, no doubt. And to Le Tour organizers for a wonderful, Olympics-like finale celebration on the Champs-Élysées, “the most beautiful avenue in the world”. Impressive indeed.

So we’ve said farewell to the Pyrenees and the Alps and all of the beautiful French countryside until next year and I’ve been stealing Antonine Megger’s thunder, for Paris is her tangle creation and she describes how she came up with it:

I was thinking about how experiences and places and DREAMS OF places can affect our art.  One of my dream destinations is Paris.  I looked at photos of the Eiffel Tower, and wondered how to include that in my Zentangles. (yes, I have tried Y-Ful Power, but I’m not so good at that one)  I have been using a number of patterns that utilize the “rice shapes” lately, and got to playing with those.  I started with parallel lines, added rice shapes and half-moon shapes, and surprise, up popped the little towers! It’s very easy for those of us who are fairly new Tanglers.  It can be used as a border or as a fill.  I’d love to see how others would use the pattern.

Antonine illustrates the steps for drawing Paris below and features her tangle with some variations both in a Zentangle® and in her very first Zendala tile (nice!).
