How to draw KIRKLAND

Zentangle pattern: Kirkland. 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.San Jose, California, CZT Andrea Chebeleu joins us today with her first tangle on the site, Kirkland. Andrea is a member of the CZT 21 certification class from June 2015.

Andrea introduces herself and explains her vacation-inspired Kirkland tangle,

I’m an artist and educator in San Jose, California. I own and operate A Work of Heart which is a commercial Mixed Media, Art & Jewelry studio and shop. I am excited to add Zentangle Art to my lineup of classes and workshops.  I teach in my studio and all around the bay area and beyond.

While away on vacation I noticed the lovely pattern on my paper towels and set to work turning it into a Zentangle pattern. Though my hand drawn rendition does not look exactly like the original inspiration, you can definitely see the inspiration.

Zentangle pattern: Kirkland.Kirkland (do I detect a Costco influence?) begins with a “dot grid” of small squares and is one of those tangles where shading makes a big difference to the finished tangle giving it a pillowy dimensional look. On the right is my example before I added shading around the elements of Step 1 as Andrea does in her tile below.

Andrea illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Kirkland here and features it in a pretty Zentangle tile with some ribbony Hollibaugh “trailers”, and two more dot-grid tangles Fife, and Huggins – all Zentangle-originals.

    Love these dot grid tangles! Thanks for sharing.

  • Mary D'Angelo

    This one looks different from many of the others. A bit complicated but came together easily! Thanks, Zen-Denizen

  • Victoria Mitchell

    Lovely tangle. I really like it.

  • Kathy Hinshaw

    I have to laugh, because I use the same paper towels (love them) and noticed the pattern a while back… but didn’t do anything about it. Thanks so much for the deconstruction and step-outs, can’t wait to try it out!

  • Melena

    I really like this tangle. It’s very fun to draw and also got me to looking at other patterns on paper towels and also toilet paper. LOL I never would have looked at these without your input. I will be using Kirkland often. Thank you for sharing this one with us.

    The whole Zentangle process has helped me see patterns all over the place. So far I see patterns that have already been deconstructed, but now I’m seeing more possibilities. 😀
