How to draw OODLES

In the NBA and played at a torrid pace, the Toronto Raptors are leading the Golden State Warriors 3 games to 1 in the breathless 2018-2019 basketball season finals — happy delirium across Canada! Tonight Game 5 is a home game in Toronto for the Raptors with a chance for them to make history should they win the game and take the series. Fingers crossed for NBA Champions from Canada!

In the UEFA Nations League finals yesterday host country Portugal defeated the Netherlands to win the new tournament’s first trophy after last week’s playoff matches.

And the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 began group stage play in France. There are some great women’s teams from all over the world competing so cheer your country’s team on! These World Cup matches go through the rest of the month with the final in Lyon on July 7th. A day after the Tour de France begins 🙂

And that’s it for my weekend update sports report. You should be able to guess where we’ll be for the best part of the next two months!

CZT Mary Van Deman is back today with her loopy Oodles tangle, it’s her second on the site. Around Valentine’s Day she shared her Shearts tangle with us.

About her Oodles tangle Mary writes,

It is pretty simple and can be used as a single line or border, or as fill if multiple lines are added. When adding more lines of this pattern it is easier to keep turning the tile matching the loops and curves together as you go.

In my sample tile I drew a line of Oodles along my string in a gentle curve, varying the size of the upper curves and adding extra lines, more fill, and shading for a free-form look.

In the section where I used it for fill I filled the diamond shapes completely with black because I needed more black in my design.

Oodles is similar to Cyndi Knapp’s Bekk loopy tangle and although it looks complicated, it’s very easy to tangle. I’ve shown my example turned “sideways”, no up or down. There are many ways to add ink and graphite fills and shading to embellish Oodles. Mary includes an unusual ribbon style version in her tile as she just described.

Mary illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Oodles below where her sample tile includes the Zentangle®-original tangles Tripoli, Knightsbridge, Florz, Msst, and Fescu.
