How to draw C-RENDIPITY

On Friday we explored Judy Okawa’s intriguing Cee tangle, composed of C-curve shapes combined to produce a variety of interesting and unusual results.

Today we’re adding CZT Veena Arun’s C-rendipity which is also composed of the elemental curve C shapes. And it’s an entirely different tangle. Earlier this year Veena shared her pretty Zari tangle with us.

The elemental strokes of a tangle in ZentangleFor those who aren’t familiar with Zentangle’s elemental strokes for deconstructing a pattern to be draw as a tangle,

Usually the number of elemental strokes needed are 3 or less. Often, you only need one or two.

By ‘elemental strokes’ we mean a dot, a straight(-ish) line, a curve (like a parenthesis), a reverse curve (like an ‘S’), and an orb or circle.“ ~ from the Zentangle blog

For an ingenious example of these elemental strokes used together as a tangle, be sure to check out CZT® Mina Hsiao’s Dicso. (Not disco!)

Veena illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing C-rendipity here on her blog where she demonstrates it in two examples showing two variations. The first is a very simple monotangle using rounding, one of six tangle enhancers, and the second is a duotangle including a webbed version of the Zentangle®-original Finery.

On this page Veena also posted an image of a page from her journal where she explores several different tangleations of C-rendipity to explore.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please do leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours.
