How to draw AUTUMNAL

Zentangle pattern: Autumnal. 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.Today’s seasonal Autumnal tangle is from Norman OK CZT Daniel Lamothe, who previously shared his Undu tangle with us before becoming a CZT earlier this year.

Daniel describes himself as being “in the tortuous years of ‘teenagerhood’ “, making him a member of the ranks of the younger CZTs in the community.

Autumnal is a tangle Daniel deconstructed last year before he became a CZT. It’s a pretty ribbon-style tangle that’s easy to draw and I’ve embellished the basic tangle a little bit with some aura-ing and solid fills.

Daniel illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Autumnal here on his blog. He demonstrates each step with a separate image, and the final one illustrates the basic “3” stroke used to compose Autumnal.

By using a long sinuous 3, you get both a curved segment on the baseline then a pointed one. The curved portion gets the teardrop shape, the pointed section the small leaf shape that opposes it. Are you still with me? 😉

Daniel describes it this way, “Add some wavy lines, with a corner every other time you meet the central line. I like to think of this as drawing a bunch of really fat Ms.” His M’s = my 3’s.

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.

And welcome to the wonderful season of Autumn!
