How to draw KELP

Zentangle pattern: KelpToday we have the sweet, and oh-so-simple tangle Kelp from Nancy Domnauer, and it’s her first tangle pattern on the site.

As you know I always like to start the week with an easy tangle and Kelp is perfect for this. The simpler the tangle, the better in my book and this is certainly minimalist with a lovely and even elegant effect.

Nancy writes:

I’ve been drawing Zentangles since July 2013 …  I was instantly hooked to this art form. Recently, I was on a trip to Monterey, CA and the ocean inspired me to draw this simple pattern which I named Kelp.

Monterey is a place of significance in this country’s history. “Monterey was the capital of Alta California from 1777 to 1846 under both Spain and Mexico. It was the only port of entry for taxable goods in California. In 1846 the U.S. flag was raised over the Customs House, and California was claimed for the United States. … Among Monterey’s notable present-day attractions are the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman’s Wharf and the annual Monterey Jazz Festival.” – Wikipedia. One of these days I WILL get to California.

Nancy’s step-by-step instructions are for a basic, bare bones Kelp. And since tangles have no up or down, for my example I reversed directions and I also filled a few of the tear-drop shapes solid black to add more pattern to the pattern. :-)

When you are faced with a blank section and can’t think what to put in it, go simple! A few wavy lines with some alternating tear-drop shapes and you’re good to go. And I know you’ll think of a bajillion fun ways to vary this easy tangle …
