How to draw ORGANIC

Republishing or redistributing IN ANY FORM including pinning is prohibited under law without express permission.Happy Monday y’all! Here in the USA we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving Day this Thursday the 26th, lots of travel plans and menu decisions going on as we officially launch into the Holiday Season — and all that that entails!

Today I have another pretty tangle from Texas tangler Sayantika Ray for you. Sayantika has several popular tangles on the site so be sure to check them out too.

Organic has a delicate woven look to it and makes a lovely ribbon or border-type tangle.

Did you know you can easily find TANGLES BY TYPE on TanglePatterns? Each tangle has its tags listed as live links in the date bar just above the comments section on each page. The date bar looks like this:

tanglepatterns-date-bar

Click on those live links to get to similar types of tangles and to find tangles by the same artist.

In the Desktop Version of the site there’s also a section called TANGLES BY TYPE in the LEFT sidebar of any page as shown in this image at the yellow arrow. Scroll to that section in the sidebar, click on the type of tangle you’re looking for, and a new page will open with the list of all the tangles of that type.

Feel like choosing tangles at random for a change of pace for your Zentangle® art?

There are three ways to do this on the site. First, there’s a random TANGLE SELECTOR in the left sidebar with instructions on how to use it, this handy gadget can also be used to select random Strings. Second, just below it there’s a TANGLE RANDOMIZER that has already pre-selected 5 random tangles to use. Third, many like to use the tangles listed at the end of every tangle in the “You might also like:” section of the page.

Be sure to check out all the features that are hidden in plain sight in the sidebars on both sides of every page. And not to forget the main menu bar across the top of every page — there’s a lot of great reading and learning there that you won’t want to miss.

Getting back to Organic, Sayantika writes:

I called it ‘Organic’. For a simple reason that I couldn’t think of any name. And this came up very naturally while I was trying to fill up a ‘border’ area in a drawing.

Sayantika illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Organic here. If you have difficulties drawing this from the bottom up, try turning your Zentangle® tile sideways. I found it easier to visualize the angle of each “cane” this way. You can also work from the top down.

And here Sayantika demonstrates several pretty ways to vary her Organic tangle, including one featuring the Zentangle enhancer Sparkle.
