How to draw IBISCU

Belgian CZT Ria Matheussen is always on the lookout for new tangles and today we have fun with her pretty Ibiscu tangle.

Ibiscu is Ria’s 20th tangle on the site and if I had to pick a favorite from her previous ones, right this minute I’m thinking Mazorito. But they’re all fun and lovely in their own way so by the time you’re reading this I’ve probably changed my mind!

Ria writes,

A nice quote of the famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is: “painting completed my life”. I could say that for me too.

I never stopped drawing since the day I discovered Zentangle® art on the Internet… and I can’t stop searching for new tangles, it has become a habit.

I see tangles everywhere, and I like that! My faves are the organic patterns and I think I saw a nice new one on this marble mosaic tile.

Orchids and Hibiscus are my favorite flowers but I can’t say which one is the most beautiful, I love them both. We have a flourishing orchid in our livingroom and a purple Hibiscus is flourishing in our garden every year during the summer.

For the name of my new pattern I took away the first and the last letters of Hibiscus, and Ibiscu appeared.

I gave it a wobbly whirl, trick thumb!

Ria illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Ibiscu below, “It is an easy pattern that can be drawn in just three steps and again many variations are possible. I added three of them.” Ria’s ZIA tile includes the Zentangle-originals Hibred, Vega and Snail.
