How to draw HORTI

Zentangle pattern: Horti. 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.Can you believe it, this is our last tangle for the month of March. Wow.

Last week we enjoyed Belgian CZT Ria Matheussen’s Nouvart tangle inspired by her love of Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods.

Today we are adding her pretty “companion” tangle Horti, from the same period of inspiration. A lovely pair of Zentangle® tangles!

After she had deconstructed Nouvart, Ria writes …

I didn’t stop looking for a second pattern (because there are two periods in this art movement) and so I have created Horti, based on a wonderful floor tile. Nouvart is more straight, Horti is more fluid to draw and has the possibility to make many variations.

Horti is easy to combine with other tangles but can be nice as a monotangle too.

Here is the tile Ria used as her inspiration for Horti.

Ria illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Horti below and she shows many different ways to vary her simple and versatile tangle.

BTW, if you’d like to learn more about Ria she was featured earlier this week on the Zentangle blog in a new series Rick and Maria just started, the “CZT Family Tree”. CZTs have been invited to fill in a form about themselves and submit it for this series so we can learn more about the Certified Zentangle Teachers. (I think you know enough about me so I won’t be submitting my form. Give the rest of our “family” a chance!)

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.
