How to draw APPEASE

Appease is from CZT Connie Green and it’s her second on the site. The very popular Liberty Fan was her first.

When I first saw Appease I knew it was familiar but it took me a minute or two to realize it’s my Chianti tangle — released from a grid. As a free-form tangle, Appease can be varied in size and placement – I like it! Another tangle with a similar motif is CZT Katy Kehoe’s Earjool.

Appease was not inspired by Chianti but instead by Connie’s research into the art of Gustav Klimt. Klimt’s artwork was explored at the CZT-only zenAgain retreat last fall.

Klimt was born in Austria in the late 1800’s. Considered an avant-garde artist, he is probably most commonly recognized today for his so-called “golden phase” when he used decorative gold leaf in his paintings.

Many of Klimt’s intriguingly detailed and colorful works can be purchased as posters or prints, like this “Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer I” where you can find Klimt’s typical motifs in the dress and background.

"Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer I"- poster available on AmazonFrom The J. Paul Getty Museum 2012 exhibition, “Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line”:

Gustav Klimt was one of the seminal figures of international Modernism. His entire artistic enterprise was based on drawing, which he practiced every day. Approximately 4,000 of Klimt’s drawings survive, and this is surely but a portion of the total number he made.

From his earliest work in the 1880s to his death, the centerpiece of Klimt’s draftsmanship, indeed of his artistic creativity as a whole, was life drawing from the nude model, in particular the female nude. It was through drawing that Klimt developed his momentous themes of human suffering, longing for love and happiness, and the cycle of life from birth to death.

Wikipedia has an extensive list of Klimt’s paintings if you’re interested in exploring.

Connie writes she found this motif in a work from “The Yearning for Happiness finds Appeasement in Poetry” and deconstructed it for us to enjoy.

I hope folks enjoy this simple pattern as much as I do.

There are so many different ways the base shape can be enhanced.

Connie illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Appease below where she explores the motif with a couple of our simple tangle enhancements. And no grid!
